Good Geminijets Stores

I was just checking some of the new arrivals on Geminijets website and was looking at their N. American retailers and came to wonder if any of them are worth visiting?

Has anyone ever been to any of them(many in S. Florida for some reason) and would any be worth visiting for worthwhile shopping? Are they large stores, or just hole-in-the-wall closet type stores? I have only visited 1 that used to be in the IAD Terminal, but it was a kiosk and only seemed to have 4 different types of airplanes, and all UA aircraft(wonder why). Was quite disappointed, although surprised to just run into it. Was just curious how any others were? It also listed the C.R. Smith museum in Dallas, which may be an interesting visit in itself.


Thanks,

OttoPylit

I know of one in San Diego that I have bought from a few times. Horton Toy & Doll in Horton Plaza, in the heart of downtown. Decent selection, they have a great online site to order from, but the store is a bit pricey.

Gemini in Las Vegas is sooo small. They have there planes cramed in their and a huge 777 model that is like 5-6 feet long cramed in to the store. In therre parking lot is good spotting for the deps. at LAS. It is a whole in the wall type store yes.

Quoting OttoPylit (Thread starter):

I can vouch for the CR Smith Museum. It has a wonderful selection, I'd say over 50 percent of their store is devoted to Die-Cast models, and almost all of them are Gemini. No surprise that more than any other are AA, but I'm here to tell you that they have many other kinds as well. At least they used to, anyway. Maybe someone else can give some more up to date info, as mine is a year old. As you said, the museum and IMAX are worth the trip, though.

Cheers,
Cameron
