    Certainly did...pWnt! I'm really wanting the new MAS livery. I'd like to check out this one from Dragon though. If this one is pretty accurate, and they come out with the 777 before Phoenix then I'd go with it for sure.

    I'm not a BIG fan of the plastic wings so I'm hoping Pheonix does it, but when they're on a shelf behind glass, you'd never know. uh oh....Does Phoenix have a 777-200 mould? *runs to look* hew! Yes they do! Was scared there for a second.
    I just cant wait to get mine..

    Im not either (Big) fan of plastic wings but as long as they're behind a glass shelf, its okey...

    My biggest thing against plastic wings is if one should drop for whatever reason. They just seem more likely that they would break. Can't do much about hte gears though.. I messed up an NWA connie by dropping it. The nose gear snapped. Glueing it wasn't fun.

    I have the same problem but just with NWA 744 instead. I had that displayed this time at my desktop. and I was cleaning. didnt saw it behind my laptop. Guess I kinda pushed it over and dropped it two feet. Nose gears broken and I dont even bother to glue it. I guess this one becoming a Inflight model..

    That is a plus about the Dragon models, you can put the doors on if you break a gear

    The BAD part about that is the ugly stands they come with. Some JetX models have branded stands that are the same shape, but are a little nicer with the airline logo and aircraft type on it. Still, ugly plastic things!

    Those chrome stands you can buy from Gemini are really nice. I picked up the Continental "In-Flight" model and it came with one. I was VERY happy to find that these stands also fit Aeroclassics and BigBird 747's (but not the 767s)

    I dont care about the stand at all. As long as the plane is detailed. I display 80% of my models *on the ground*

    I like that *feature* with Dragon. I think I have around three models with broken gears because I was uncareful with them but its great to bo able to close the doors.

    Thats what I thought at first. It seems they use the term for special editions of a model that are sold on the planes. Virgin Atlantic gets models in every once in a while, they usually change the registration and names on the models each time they order them. I think thats kinda cool of them. The CO 777 I have came in a different box (all blue with a large CO logo) and has a different registration than the standard Gemini CO 777. I may pick up that other CO 777 just to have a 'set' with different registrations.

They look pretty good to my surprise.

    well I display only my special aircrafts on base+stand. like Airbus A380 and Air force One, Cargolux , BA corgu tail livery. etc..
    I might buy some more base+stands as Im in need of space. My glas shelf is getting crowded.

    Yeah. Doesnt look good. but *spectators* doesnt see under the aircraft. So That wouldnt be a big problem with me..
