Default KLM heavies

Got my Gemini200 KLM MD-11 last month and now I got both KLM and KLM Cargo 747's. Goes well with my KLM Asia

Bye bye MD-11. You will be missed in the passenger world <3

...I just need the B744F (I have both of the 1st release KLM B744's) and the MD-11 and that will complete my KLM heavies ....

...wouldn't mind seeing the metal versions of the B789 and A350 at some stage .....

...also it'd be great to see the B772ER (asia font) and B773ER (ASIA font) released...

...I see at Schiphol they have converted a retired KLM MD-11 into a 2 bedroom apartment ... any takers on splitting the rent with me? ........

KLM turns jet into a two bedroom apartment

I have just received my KLM B744 PH-BFU and am delighted with it !I also have the
original IF 200 KLM B744 PH-BFW also a great model.

I am most keen on obtaining the yet to be released KLM DC-8-63 PH-DEH.

I got my IF200 KLM 747-400, City of Beijing, last week and I have to say that It is a beautiful model.
It complements very, very well with the Gemini200 KLM Md11.

I got my KLM 747 last week and I agree, it is a beautiful model. It goes well with Gemini's previous 777-232 and MD-11 releases, as well as other KLM models that I have.

There is some color variation with the greatest being between the MD-11 and the 777-232 and 747, but I have to say that there is more color variation in pictures of the 1:1 on various airframes than there is between these models. Blue paint oxidizes easily on the real thing, so some color variation has always been there. I actually think the color variation makes my10 aircraft KLM fleet look more realistic.

I recently got the 747 to add to the KLM fleet... agree with everybody that its a lovely model and glad Inflight released it as the previous 747 was hard to find and quite expensive....

The 747 adds nicely to the KLM collection

Looks fantastic. Very well done!

Hope GJ will release the MD-11 in the old colors too.
