Re: Petition to GeminiJets for more DC-8-3x models!
Gemini Jets for the most part is the only manufacturer that has released any DC-8-30 series models in the 1:400 scale. Shuco has released 1 model, however, they are also a sub-brand of the Gemini Jets family. We already have the following releases produced:
(1) Japan Air Lines DC-8-33 GJJAL229 (1970's Livery)
(2) Northwest Airlines DC-8-33 GJNWA230 (1960's Livery)
(3) Swissair DC-8-33 GJSWR268 (1970's Livery)
(4) Varig Brasil DC-8-33 GJVRG013 (1970's Livery)
(5) Viasa Venezuela DC-8-33 (1960's Livery)
Yes, a whole whopping 5 Airlines that have been produced, and Gemini Jets has the only mould as it appears for the Dash-8 Series 30. Along with the previously posted photos of Airlines, I would also like to see the following produced as well (see attached photos)... aside from the United "Mainliner" livery, which pales in comparison to their "Friendship" livery with all the "Bars & Stars" , both versions would be a welcome addition to anyone's collection if they happen to collect United models. Regardless as to which manufacturer produces these models, they would definitely be a popular item with the "Vintage Era" Collectors.
As for myself...put me down for one of each!
