Gemini's 1:400 scale C-17 is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal with only the smallest amount of plastic used. This model's solidly constructed seamless wide-body fuselage features a wonderfully sculpted nose with pad-printed windows and doors that do not interrupt the lines of the aircraft. Both cargo door bay doors articulate at the rear of the model for quick and easy ground display with the pad-printed loading ramp lowered. The solid metal wings feature razor thin winglets that are integrated into the wing casting along with beautifully detailed turbo fan engines with the characteristic aerodynamic strakes atop the engine nacelles.
