I just had to get my camera and do some better pictures of this model.
We think you will agree this is an awesome model of the highest standard and would take pride and place in any collection of model aircraft.
The nose can be tilted or put in the flight position there is also a small visor so you can show the model in supersonic flight configuration. Even the reverse thrusters move there is very little detail that they have left off.
The gear can be removed and door covers put in place. The door covers are magnetic so they wil not fall out and hold nicely in the correct position. The model also comes with a stand but does sit quiet happly on its wheel as well.
The landor livery is considered to be the best paint job ever applied to its aircraft and the silver "Fly to serve " logo sits proudly on the tail

Being a 400 scale collector I don't usually dabble in 1:200. However, when I saw Gemini release this Concorde in the iconic Landor livery, I snapped it up straight away. I'm very glad I did as the quality and level of detail is outstanding.
Like some collectors, I thought the introduction of moving parts like nose cone and thrust reversers might be at the expense of overall accuracy. I was wrong and Gemini have pulled this off brilliantly allowing display in different configurations.
The landing gear fits magnetically which helps if you wish to display on the stand with the gear down. There is a separate plastic visor that clips on for 'nose up' position.
Details including antenna, elevon and rudder actuator fairings all seem to be true to scale. The printing of detail is accurately placed and correctly sized. Previous manufacturers have misplaced the British Airways crest on the tail and oversized the windows.
The only tiny criticism is the model sits a little nose down on its stand. Also, watch out for the thrust reverser doors as they are prone to falling off however can be easily attached into their fittings with tweezers.
Gemini have really surpassed themselves and I would recommend this model to any Concorde enthusiast as I believe it to be a most accurate replica and excellent value.
