Default air new zealand DC-10-30 ZK-NZS

Inflight200 have released two ANZ DC-10 examples before IF103008 ZK-NZM released in 2008 (a year before I joined the forum and I managed to get one in 2010) I then sold it when inflight announced a the next vesion was going to be polished, which I never got for some reason or another. I guess other new models kept being released that I wanted.

The next Inflight200 installment was IFDC100214P ZK-NZL released in May 2014. The one I missed out on.

The subject of this thread is IFDC100617P (NZS) the third installment was released Feb 2018. Since it has been stated there are no rare models just " Hard to Get" models, you could well argue that the two of the above and this last release, fit into the "Hard to Get" category. Just by complete off-chance I decided I wanted to add NZS to my collection just in the last fortnight. I got real lucky as this was the last one at Collectors Aircraft Models Australia.

ZK-NZS was first flown at 29 Apr 1976 and accepted by Air New Zealand 6 JUN 1976 at McDonnell Douglas Corporation Longbeach California. This aircraft did not serve Air New Zealand very much. Most of the time it was leased. Inflight have made most, but not all, of the leased airline liveries of this air frame. Enjoy NZS (C/N 46954-227) as she was when with Air New Zealand.

That’s a beauty. There’s something about these older liveries with the engine nacelle stripes... thanks for posting Steve

It's a great model accompanied by great photography. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I've got a few different scales of this aircraft/airline myself and love every one of them. Love 3 holers!

Great model, love the fact that inflight now offers a stand with the DC10. Can it support the weight of the DC10 well? Shame that the landing gear still isn't removable. Never the less, great model.

Hi Tom,


This Inflight DC-10-30 is very heavy much more than the original releases. It sits on the stand no problem. I agree that it should have removable gear too. The model also came with a ramp parking apron too which is very nice





and the stand

That apron plate is very nice! Common now with DC10 releases? Ordered the AA 10 so hope this plate comes with it. Nice gesture Inflight!
