Default What is the DL MD90 like?

Thinking of getting the Jet-X DL MD90 in the latest colors. Just wonder if those that has it are happy with the model.

I can't speak for the current livery Delta MD-90, but I can speak for the mould - I have the Delta widget livery and the American. I'm really happy with them, I think the aircraft is spot on, Jet-X always seems like they are a step above. The bigger engines really look neat on that fuselage.

Good to hear that the mould is good.

Happy if someone can tell me if they got the livery right (the colors).

Here you go some picture's, two made N919DN, & N901DA, both the same other than the registration, nice models only down side is the tail fin color could have been more red, and slightly brighter.

That seems to be a problem with every manufacturer, same thing on my DL 767-300 by GJ200. Still, I'm happy with it and it's a minor flaw.

One model has more windows than the other. That's nice to have that small difference so you're not just getting two exact models with only different tail numbers.

Thanks for the pics!


Are the main gears a bit too long? It seems that the rear is very high up compared to the front.

Mains are very tall but look less so when viewed 1:1.

See the highlighted window pattern comps....
