Re: Gemini 200 January Releases

It looks like the Landor crowd will be disappointed. The pre-order Gemini Concorde is this one.

Thumbs up Re: Avro Ashton Western Models

Yes, it is. Last time I dug into my Jetliner reference, I did't notice AVRO flogging the design specs to anyone else. I'll have to look again, as they do look awfully similar. ;)

I'm curious . . . who made the AF CRJ-200? For some odd reason, this one must have slipped under my radar.

Re: Air France B777-200 from Inflight

Both Gemini and Inflight have done a 777-200 (772). Only Gemini did one in AF livery, F-GSPX, as you noted. I have that one looking at me here.

Both firms did 773's as well, and but only Gemini...
