Unhappy Inflight200 Mexicana DC10-15 XA-MEX "Iztaccihuatl"

After many months of abstinence, finally I got this awaited model. Not what I was expecting.

It is a real shame that Inflight messed-up with the color of the cheatline, the most important thing for this model and livery was that detail they just blew it. It's suppossed to be golden, a golden line for this classic of aviation, instead they put a copper tone. IDK, something really odd and sad if you ask me.

You let me down Inflight!

Being a formal brand with licenses, years of experience and some reputation; you could at least have asked to Gemini which color they used for the B727 released many years before, even JC Wings made a very decent pair of the B727-100s.

Anyway, here some pictures.

I feel sorry for you, it definitely looks wrong. Shame on IF for spoiling such a beautiful livery.

The tires are way too fat for a -10 or -15 model. The -30 and -40 had much larger tires than the domestic versions. If IF200 would just use the L1011 tires on the DC10-10, it would be much more accurate.

The color on the DC-10 is not even close to accurate. I saw it without other models to compare color. How can people in the QC Dept. (if they have them?) get it that wrong? It makes me worry they are going to mess up the ONA DC-10 just announced. One of my holy grails. Sorry for your disappointment. I would be as well.

Inflight has become a very lazy brand in terms of quality, can't believe they have ruined a very classic livery this bad. How is that JC has become my first option for purchasing, specially for B747 models?

Shame on them.

Yup, I was just mentioning the wrong color on another thread! Hopefully they get it right second time around, whenever that'll be!

Photos are really nice though. I remember when this came out how disappointed collectors were. I think I was at the Newark show when this came out and it sat, and sat, and sat on vendors tables!

I have communicated with Inflight and they are aware of the initial release error and hopefully they will get it right with the upcoming new release which i think will even have removable landing gears to diplay inflight or on tarmac.
I hope it will be done right because i sold my original one could not bare looking at that copper color
