Re: Gemini 400 June Releases

I hope that Gemini will utilize JC's 1:200 737-300 mould to give us a Western 737-300 in the final "Bud Lite" paint scheme (polished/bare metal). That would be spectacular in 1:200.

Agree. Here's hoping that Gemini will take the Western 737-300 and also release one in 1:200 scale.
