Gemini Jets 1:250 scale Eastern DC-8-61

The price was right so I thought I'd pick up one of Gemini Jets' 1/250 scale jetliners to go with my collection of AeroMinis...

Not a bad looking product. The hull wings and tail are solid metal. Engines are plastic. Detail is not as rich as an AeroMini...

Wheels seem a bit on the frail side and it can't be too confidence inspiring to note they include a baggette of replacement wheels

Compares nicely with this AeroMini 707...

I have the 1:400 in Trans Carib colors:

... as well as United.

The first DC-8 I ever flew in was this Alitalia Series 62 but this model represents one of the early standard issues.

An Eastern DC-8-21 was one of my first two Gemini Jets I bought in 2000. Here is a Delta version from a couple years later:

I normally don't buy the GEMINI JETS, but when I saw the GEMINI JETS 250TH scale DOUGLAS DC8-61,

I was very, very impressed. Especially when I received it. For those of you who can't afford the million dollars

($250) for the AERO MINI DOUGLAS DC8, these are great. Fantastic actually. I like the shiny metal very much.

So I now have three of the GEMINI JETS DOUGLAS DC8 from EBAY, that the seller had for a very low price.

Thanks very much for the beautiful pictures. Richard Starr
