Default Gemini200 Announces Old Livery KLM MD-11

They did it now:

geminijets.com announced the long awaited KLM MD-11 with the older livery on their website in the preview-area.
Seems to have the grey belly:

G2KLM844 1:200 KLM MD-11

Many will be happy!

I will definitely take her but perhaps JC Wings will do another KLM MD-11 with the 'click away' titles at some point..

Too bad they did not go for the polished belly. The true first look of the KLM MD-11.

PH-KCE (Audrey Hepburn) has allready been done by Herpa, Hobbymaster, Hogan and JC wings so I'm hoping for a registration that hasn't been done before. Like the PH- KCA Amy Johnson.

Absolutely the right call. Freedom of speech is one thing, but self censorship seems to be lost on some people these days.

Amy Johnson was the VERY first MD11 that I saw in person. Back in 2013, at the old Street Festival that Pearson used to hold. Sadly, they do not do it anymore. This was when we first got into Plane models.

Mother Teresa is a good choice but i wouldn't go with Amy Johnson, she was British was she not.. another great choice would have been 'Annie Romein', she was famous Dutch writer & historian..

Annie Romein would also be nice. They were named as followed:
PH-KCA Amy Johnson, only one delivered with polished belly
PH-KCB Maria Montessori (done by hogan in farewell colors and gemini in last colors)
PH-KCC Marie Curie
PH-KCD Florence Nightingale (done by hogan and JC wings in farewell colors)
PH-KCE Audrey Hepburn (done by Herpa, hogan and JC wings in '95 colors and herpa and
HM in last colors) also wore click livery
PH-KCF Annie Romein also wore click livery
PH-KCG Maria Callas also wore click livery
PH-KCH Anna Pavlova also wore click livery
PH-KCI Mother Teresa
PH-KCK Ingrid Bergman also wore click livery

Great overview Baerke.
I must admit I only have the KCE made by HM (looks really good imo). Even though the announced release sound promissing, not sure if a grey or white belly is the one for me. I do look for that polished belly. It looks stunning on the MD-11 and makes it just that little bit more like a classic to me. Gemini has made some great polished models, so maybe I am going to wait it out and hope someone will eventually make it.

That polished belly indeed was a stunner on the klm (and martinair ) MD11. Hoping for that release too in the future. But I have to add this release too, it is to good to ignore! Finally it can replace my old ppc kca. The Hobbymaster MD11 is quite nice indeed, have got it aswell.

Very very nice suggestion Surinam Air. Would be a nice model. I have the old herpa release but unfortunately it is in the fox Kids livery.
