Maiden Voyager: Virgin's Early Years 84-86

This avhistory blogpost features a model I picked up at the last AMS fair, which was made by Gemini Jets for Virgin's 25th anniversary. Fittingly it represents the airline's first aircraft - wearing the initial scheme, complete with falling painter. Nowadays Virgin is part of the establishment but it started with just a single aircraft and single route:

Nice model and article. This model is also very nice... too bad Gemini still didn't update these ugly engine pylons. I don't mind about the cradle mould, I just wish these engines could fit tighter and had better pylons.
