Oh gawd....I hope the Etiam CAEW variants follow....I desperately want a non-vacform Singapore G550!

Outstanding, been waiting for one of these. I am sure it will be a lot cheaper than the Broplan kit and a lot easier to build.

Good news as I love a Gulfstream bizjet! Now I wonder if they do a Gulfstream 1, II, III, IV & V ? I thought there was issues with the licensing Grumman Bizjets..

^ maybe we shouldn't say that too loudly...Amodel make no reference at all to Tupolev in their 1/144 Camel model.

I'm so looking forward to their biz-jet models. At long last someone has decided to kit these beautiful aircraft. I'd love if they expanded the G***str**m range to include the whole range past and present.

Very nice aircraft. A pure beauty to my taste. The only problem is that G550/650 are a bit too big for 1/72. They are a size of b737-200 or DC-9-15. So maybe A-model would consider downscaling to 1/144 one day...

Love it!! Looking forward to getting mine soon.

But why do the kits engines rotate in opposite directions.....

Amodel quote Humbrol 48 as a match for the blue - can someone tell me the FS number?

Thanks

There is no FS colour as far as I am aware. The official designation for the colour is 'BAC7071 Presidential Flight Light Blue' It is available in the Xtracolour range as X165.

 

That being said, I built a C-32 many years ago and used a Tamiya blue for it,  XF-14 lightened slightly as I recall.

 

The Humbrol 48 looks too dark  to me BTW.

 

Here is a picture of my C-32 with my other Military airliners

This machine is new VIP transport in Poland, likely decal will be produced for it by some Polish brand. I think she looks attractive:

Thanks for the colour detail - although it looks closer to the Presidential dark blue....X164

Just noticed that the decal sheet does not match the box art.  It shows 10065 for the USAF scheme, which is a C-37A, whereas the box is correct with 60500 as a C-37B.
