Hey Matt,
yours is a huge collection, especially if I consider that you built it in only six months.
I have discovered GeminiJets and then Dragon just four months ago.
Here is my collection:

GeminiJets:

British Airways 777-200ER
Delta Air Lines L1011-250 Tristar
Delta 777-200ER
Emirates 777-300ER
United Airlines 747-400
EL AL 747-400
JAL 747-300
SAA 747SP


Dragonwings:

Alitalia 747-200F
Alitalia MD-11
Northwest 747-200F
FEDEX MD-11F
ANA 777-300
American Airlines DC10-30
QANTAS 747-400
Singapore A340-300
TAM A330-200
Garuda A330-300

Plus I have a unique Herpa, a United 777-200

I am planning of getting some more US airlines models like USAirways A330-300 (DW) and 757-200 (GJ) Continental DC10 and 764 and American 767 and 777 (I'll wait GJ to prodeuce them).

By the way, are you also a memeber of the DAC forum?
My nickname there is Mantech

Wow

I can see that you guys are a heck of plane collectors. How do you get all that much money? Dragon Wings and Gemini Jets is getting expensive these days and I wanna know what is the average price of a plane you bought?

Hi,
you are right, those models are quite expensive.
The average for either Dragon or Gemini is 24/25 $ but if you have to order it on the internet and have them shipped from overseas like me you end spending bout 35$ each. Way too much, that's why I have decided to slow down in buying them. One per month should be fine.

You think some of them are expensive now? Wait until they are discontinued and sold out, and are harder than hell to find. Then you'll see expensive.

Steman :
Which website you ordered the models from?? Are they reliable??

Because in Singapore, the price for GJ is much more expensive than in US (around S$45-50 for normal models, even more for special models), so if the internet gives me a cheaper alternative, I will straight away use them.

My collection so far :

DRAGON WINGS :
Austrian Airlines A321-200 "Johann Strauss"
Garuda Indonesia A330-300
Airbus Industrie A340-300 "Zhuhai Commemorative"
Singapore Airlines B777-300 "Jubilee"
New York Air B737-400
TAP Air Portugal B737-400 "Expo 98"
Canadian B747-400 "Team Canada"

STAR JETS :
Braniff International DC8-32 "Blue Livery"

HERPA WINGS :
United Airlines B747SP "Friendship One"

JA

Hi,
my favourite source when it comes to order GeminiJets is www.airplaneshop.com which is also the one linked to airliners.net (You can find it in the homepage).
When I orderd Dragonwings I did it through the british CAM but I have been disappointed more than once: they took many weeks to send me the models and they put as available models that they don't have so I am still waiting for my Singapore A340 and Qantas 744. Their prices are high because of the British Pound but the shipping fee is very cheap.
Fortunatley I prefer GJ to DW and I have only a couple of Dragon models left to buy: CO 764 and US A330 but I won't order them in UK again.
There are many other good site, most of all in USA but my problem is the high custom fee when they use express couriers to ship models. Once infact I had to pay 40$ extra at the delivery after having paid the models and 16 $ of shipping. When they use normal Postal service I don't have such problem.

Hey guys,

Sorry for not returning to this topic for quite sometime. Sorry, didn't have the time.

Hey Charles, I know Stefano too. Get to know him, he is a darn good friend of mine but I have never met him before. But I always speaked my problems to him... kudos Stefano! So how are your tests coming Charles? Never got your email anymore.

The MD-90s were great. But I think I will wait for more interesting airlines rather than US airlines.

Hello guys,

Yap. I agree with Stefano on this, I am very disappointed with CAM. They list models that they currently don't have on their websites so when you by chance order it, you got to wait for a very long time. I am really fed up with them, I ordered months ago and they haven't shipped it I reckon.
