Re: Gemini 200 September Releases

Re: Thai B747-4D7, HS-TGG, a re-review!

It's a shame the fuselage printing is so off-center. I would have likely returned that, but problem is I would guess most of the examples have the same issue.

Agreed! I have it in the 1:400 scale by Big Bird 400 (Original). Never had an opportunity for the 1:200 version. They fetched a fair price and likely still do if they come available.
