You guys nailed it! That IS an MD-11 looking model!
The delicate shaped landing gears AND an accurate shaped cockpit / nose area makes it THE MD-11 model ! Thank you for showing !

Looks pretty awesome to me! Not too sure on the nose area, but it could be distortion from the photos.

Just got back from the show...quite nice! Can get some pretty good deals here, and get an up-close peek at the new SMA MD-11 China Eastern, China Eastern Cargo and China Cargo. Gots myself the entire set.

Met up with the guru AK himself, owners of SMA...even JC himself made an appearance at this show. Wonder if he will setup a table next year.

Love most of it, but the engine cowlings are way too smooth. No detail there. Looks like they went with one piece, which has the inlet ring, cowling, and reversers all together, without even a printed line to denote the thrust reversers. They also moulded in the vortex generators, which should come up over the inlet ring (which should be thicker) and not be so chunky. Other than that nothing jumps out at me. I would love to see a shot down the #2 and one of the underside/gear.

Well, this is brilliant!! I thought JC nailed it with the much improved tail engine inlet rings on the AA MD11, but this even beats that - very well done indeed and thanks to all at SMA.

Its just like looking at a real MD11, only in 1:200 scale - those flightdeck windows look awesome!! The only (very slight) area for attention I have noticed is that the inlet lips on the wing mounted engines need to be printed a little wider when viewed from the side - both PW4000 and CF6-80C2. This is a common but minor fault on AeroClassics 1:400 high bypass turbofans. Other than that - PERFECT!!

I am drooling over the thought of Aer Lingus (90s c/s), LTU, and Finnair (delivery c/s) MD11s from you guys.

Mark.

This has been worth the wait! Fantastic model:
wing leading edge shape
wing body joint
fairings
engine#2 intake
angle of engine#2 duct
nose shape
winglets

all correct! Best MD11 around in 1:200.

I can only agree with Thijs!

Fantastic MD-11 model. Although that's what I think.

Looking forward to see upcoming releases.
Especially the house colors, Aeroflot and KLM o/c.

Thank you SMA team.

Can we have photos showing the model under? Landing gears?
Please?

Also, they have a hole for stand?

now, that we know SMA is going to bring all MD-11s liveries (very ambitious imho) - i wonder if there is hope for this one too? sure, it never happened, but due to things happened JAT couldn't really influence. in fact they planned to phase out their DC-10 with MD-11s in the early 90s.

Mine arrived yesterday. Wow what a looker she is. You can really appreciate the lines in person, plus the model has quite a bit a weight to the mold. Much like the new InFlight200 DC-10's. So glad to add it to my collection.

Great work SMA. I would love to see Air Zaire depiction in the future.

Do these models have removable landing gear? I know they don't have stands for them yet, but I know that is coming soon.
