So what is the scoop on Gemini jets. I'm thinking about getting back into collection as a hobby...I've seen countless photos of them and have browsed through geminijets.com. My question is, are they the most complete, detailed realistic model you can get? How big are they? Anyone have one? Do the wheels actually turn?

I've only been collecting diecast airplanes for the last two years so I may not be the best person to reply to this posting. However I only collect 1/400th scale models primarily "Jet-X" although I have several "Gemini Jets" & "Dragonwings" in my collection. A 1/400th scale 747 is about 6 to 7 inches long, as for the wheels non of the models I have "turn". All of the above have (in my opinion) very good realism although that may be contested by other forum members. Ironically I find it cheaper to import several models at a time from an outlet in Western USA rather than buy them locally in the UK. Hope this helps.

In my opinion, GeminiJets are very acurate and realistic, and are of superb quality. They are my favorite model manufacturer in the 1:400 scale, but there are several others out there that are just as good as Gemini, and in some cases better. They all have registration numbers, and all regular releases from Gemini are limited to 2,000, which gives them a collectable value too. But of course, thats not why I collect them. Also, there is a HUGE selection to choose from from Gemini, and they usually release about 7 or so models per month. So have fun with the hobby, collect what you like, and remember, you dont have to stick with 1 model company. Some other good ones are DragonWings, AeroClassics, Herpa, and Jet-X, as Runway25 mentioned.

BTW, if you want rolling wheels, go for 1:200 scale. I collect 1:200 and 1:400, and love the 1:200's. They just take up so much space, and it's hard to build a large collection.

Good Luck, and I hope this helps.  Big thumbs up

I collect Gemini Jets, Dragon Wings, and Jet-X models and I have to say that these are very realistic and as far as accuracy is concerned, I can't say much there because I'm not an expert. I think both companies have excellent representations of the aircraft and the respective paint schemes that each model wears. I can't comment on Herpa and AeroClassics, though.

My suggestion for anyone starting a collection and wanting to display it: I would put these aircraft in a display case. It's easier to dust them!
