Re: Comparison: Qantas 747SP GJ & NG

Like I've said in another thread, you can almost always count on Gemini getting the colors right. I've never had any issues with them on color at all.

Re: Southwest special schemes

I agree with you there...Aeroclassic's attempt wasn't even close.
Still, I'm happy with N714CB. I really don't think anyone will get it spot on.

Re: Aeroclassics Beauties of 2021

Yep, mine had the left wing loose, but still attached.... I have to say with the lighting you have the color on N714CB appears to be spot on.

Re: HOT HOT HOT! Photos of the NG WN 737-700

From what I understand, N96SW was the only 737-200 painted in the canyon blue....was painted blue in early 2001 and was retired in January 2005.
