Thanks for the pics! Although the airline doesn't fit my collecting criteria, this is an absolutely beautiful model. The overall shape and accuracy look terrific, and it's got lots of yummy detail. I like how the cockpit window printing looks more realistic than the typical "solid gray with silver frames" that we usually see on diecast models. A subtle touch that makes a big difference. Very nice! I also notice the additional antennas on the aft top fuselage which are missing from the Gemini model. Another nice touch.

I'm really, really excited to see other offerings from SMA in this scale, and will definitely be purchasing your models and supporting you guys. If you keep the quality/accuracy standards high and produce some U.S. subjects, my wallet will be flying open. Just take my money!

Nice box design and logo artwork, too. And cool artwork on the wall in the background of the first pic.

Nose gear door opens to the right angle. Shame on the GJ version!

Model look so good...and it has the stand too, very clever, it does not interfere with the center gear, I am going to buy my first MD-11!!!
Thank you for showing the model underside, it has so many details.

This looks crazy good, especially the nose shape, gears and engines. Nice to see detail as well as accuracy. Now please do Delta!!

^ Agreed, Delta would be most welcome. I'll probably buy whatever the first U.S. airline SMA puts out with this mould. Just wish they'd give us some insight as to what and when that might be. The SMA folks seem pretty tight-lipped about their plans.

^ +1 for the Widget!

Thank you SMA!
