First JetBlue Models

Sun Jan 13, 2002 9:54 am

Hello,

Just noticed that Gemini Jets are releasing 1:400 3 jetBlue models (the 3 different tails) AFAIK, these are the 1st jetBlue models on the market. Here are pictures from the Gemini site:







These will only be availible from jetBlue and not from ay model retailer. Someone on DAC contacted jetBlue, they said they would be sold on http://www.jetblutique.com./ for $21.95 + P&P a piece.

Also good news in that it means Gemini has produced its second Airbus type (up till now it's been the A319 only) and will no doubt offer the A320 in more airlines in the near future. Hopefully they will offer both types with CFM powerplants as well as the IAE-powered versions.

The 1:400's are not up on the site yet.
Only the plastic 1:150 $29.95 and the wood 1:100 $225.95

SJ will most likely NOT get a licence. GJ has been talking to JetBlue for over a year in order to get this done. From what I understand there will be 2500 of each made. Not just 2500 of all 3.

That means 3 for me and 7497 for the rest of you.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Just want to say I was psyched to see the photos of those JB 320s. I LOVE Gemini Jets planes.

That SWA NewMexico One looks hot too...

I just got the BA 732 2-plane set and they're awesome. Wish I had enough money right now to drop $22 each time because I would also like the SWA 73G and 732 AND the Delta L1011.

CO777-200ER, the jetBlue GJ 320s aren't available yet. The GJ site just says they'll be released soon and via the jetblutique.

p.s. I have yet to fly with them, but these jetBlue guys are awesome.
Bonjour Chef!

Are these that hard to get. I can't wait till they come in again because I always wanted to see a model made of Jet Blue. I just got 3 other planes from Gemini and they are beautiful. I got the Delta Belle L1011, UA747, and SW 737 NC.

Yes they will. Call up the direct number to the Jetblue store and tell them the ones you want to order. Tehn they will hold them and ship them on 2/18. I just did that on Friday. They are very nice about it!

Just received all three models this afternoon after spending the weekend away from home (they apparently arrived Saturday). Great, accurate, spot on models! Any collector should get these!

So what's the word, they have back-ordered some and they'll be in on February 18th, meaning I can get my hands on some?!

Well, I have 2 of each on order.

But don't sweat it people.

As soon as Feb 18 rolls around, and the shipments go out, E-bay is going to be FLOODED with them.

I have always believed that very, very few people actually collect these models. They all just seem to get passed around from person to person, each hoping to make a "killing" on it on E-bay.

And I'm sure that these are no different. If 1000 of each are made, for a total of 6000 pieces, at least half of them will be up for auction within 6 months.


So don't worry people. There will plenty of chances to get them.

Hmm... maybe I should put mine on Ebay now then, and just order another set from jetBlue for delivery in February.

Folks,

If you want the JetBlue models and don't want to risk e-bay, phone JetBlue (the number is on the jetblutique site) and pre-order them. They had 300 of each and sold them in about a day. The remaining 700 of each - they're only doing 1000 of each in total - will arrive mid February but the guy at JetBlue said that the pre-orders were coming in so quick there probably wouldn't be any left unsold to put up on the website by 18 Feb.
