That's great news. Hope GJ will do the same. PH-KCE had the 95 years logo but PH-KCB and KCD had also special decals on the farewell MD-11 day on 11 november! Hope they will do them too!

Maybe both 'exclusive' and 'special' in the title was a bit over the top
Still a great model though.

I wish Gemini would make one with the Douglas aircraft history. Like this!

It's special for sure and think it will sell well keeping in mind that 2 day's ago the MD11 made her last pax flight.

Hope GJ will do the MD-11 with the Douglas line sticker on an improved mould.

I like the Herpa models too but....the Gemini is a lot better. Herpa had a very good MD-11 mold (hogan), but the one they have now isn't that good...

Hope GJ will do the KCD in farewell outfit and KCA in delivery collors, sure they will sell now that the last KLM MD-11's are famous among airplane lovers.

Isn't it best to just have the most accurate model? I buy both and granted there are somethings that need to made with metal but plastic can be more detailed.

What happened to Herpa? They at some point just said screw the antennas and let's make the landing gear look ridiculous.

I agree. I would rather have a more accurate plastic/resin model over a less accurate and crude metal model and at the end of the day I'm paying less for both the model and shipping costs.

Besides with so many of these newer generation of planes being made out of composite/plastic materials, seeing models of them made in solid heavy metal just takes away that little degree of authenticity from them.

Well 100 pieces restricted to certain countries will certainly not suffice in regards to demand so Hogan may fill the void with their own version of the same model.

I have e-mailed Herpa and according to them, this model (PH-KCE 95 Years) is coming before Christmas! Aviation megastore here in the Netherlands has the model up for pre-order. Limited (as said before) to 100 pieces.
