Smile FedEx MD11 (pic intensive)

Very well made model, the windscreen is looking really good, the whole aircraft is pretty accurate.

I really like this model. The only problem I have with it is the nose looks kinda weird. When I pulled mine out and looked at it I noticed it has some weird edges. I'll try to get some photos and show what I mean

Another must to meet with the rest FedEx fleet. The only negative for this beautie is the plastic engines under the wing and No 2 engine fan blades been far ahead of the original place. Other wise PERFECT! ! Thanks for posting.

Nice model and set up.

Looking forward to the purple Fedex scheme.

Small thing though, I still think winglet has the wrong shape. Looks more like a sharklet.
See pic 7 and

I can see you spent some efforts to the setup. However, is the LD-3 container being placed with wrong direction?

It could be wrong, but the more likely explanation is they are loading the right side of the aircraft first
