Re: Gemini 400 August Releases

It's good to see Gemini finally getting access to the JC Wings 789 moulds but when can we see Gemini getting the JC 777 mould? Half of 2020 is gone and GJ is still using the old cradle-fit mould....

Re: People complaining about NG to make 1/500?

1/500, why?! So NG can make a model small enough to not be able to see all their attention to detail?

Re: NG Model - New 1:400 Boeing 747SP Mould

IMHO, collecting all 747's incl. the SP and leaving out the 747-100 or 747-400 is ridiculous. The SP is just a bonus add-on. I'll probably buy one NG models SP, probably in the Iran Air colors or the...

Re: NG Model - New 1:400 Boeing 747SP Mould

It's good to see many of you get your wish and seeing this mould come back to life though the odd shape just doesn't do it for me. I would be very excited to see the 747 -100/200/300/400 though.

Re: 787-10 United NG vs Gemini Jets Comparison

...And lets face it, it's really a JC Wings mould, not a Gemini. If it were up to them, Gemini would try and slap an outdated cradle-fit 787-10 together from their existing 788 or 789 mould.
