Your Opinion On Models.

Wed Mar 21, 2001 6:12 am

If I wanted a high quality die cast model (no plastic) of let's say a 777 who would you suggest?
Who do you think has the best out there?
Any websites you could recommend?

Thanks!
Peter

Herpa is good, but I don't like their landing gears.

Gemini Jets look nice, but not much of a selection. I'm looking for a 777-200 and -300 in Boeing colors with no luck yet. Boeing's website doesn't even have any, well they do but plastic ones which I'm not too fond of.  Sad I want them for my office and I'd like to stay away from advertising a paticular airline since our agency deals with various airlines. Besides we have posters doing that already. The 777-200 in Delta's new colours doesn't do it for me. I'm being just be a bit picky but oh well.
What's Dragon Wings website? My searches have not been succesful.
