    I am trying to like the Gemini Jets / JC Wings 767-200 mould but finding it difficult. The cockpit printing, and just the look in general, doesn't look very good.

    It might be something to do with the plane, it just dont seem to have any grace, little style or 'brand' image.. i.e if its a Boeing .. give it a Boeing nose..!.....

    It's a very plain plane - but then so are a lot of them these days.

    I'm just happy you are taking and posting your pics again! I was afraid you had disappeared

    I think the models look wonderful. Weren't there 3 other colors in the real fleet too?
    I remember when the -200s were plentyful in UNITED battleship gray back when I was spotting a lot at SFO. I called them 'stubbos'. Short little fat guys

    I can accept that nose, in my non-sharp eyes its nose is quite good.

    The colors of the wings are correct
    And how about an Austral BAC 1-11 ?

    what i like better about this mould is the frontgear...the strut to be precisely.
    it looks shorter and bigger in diameter, what gives the whole front fuselage a more decent look.
