I like the Qantas Fokker-100, even though it was released by Herpa. Looking forward to getting the American Eagle Dash 8-300. Hope to see the AA Fokker 100 (polished) and American Eagle Dash 8-100 Piedmont heritage.

I got excited when I saw a Piedmont DHC-8 in the description. REALLY wish it was a Piedmont Henson -102. We could also use a UAL Saul Bass on any of the 767 moulds, -200 or -300. Heck, I'd even buy a small titles version!

Wouldn’t surprise me, given the recent Delta 767-300

Very nice that Gemini choose the KCK registration! At first it was ment to be KCB but that is allready released in the newer colors.

I consider KCK the worst possible choice, as KCK is the only one in KLM's fleet with the later style of flaps, and GJ's mold has the standard, shorter flap hinges.

Most MD-11's don't have flap hinges like this, GJ's mold doesn't, but KCK does, and no others in KL's fleet:

Nope, you're wrong. Gemini did make an MD-11 with the latter version flap hinges, as proven by their Lufty Cargo, see pic:

Interesting info. Did not know about the different flap systems on the MD-11.

I know the tail engine inlet bulge was extended after the first 128 aircraft were delivered. Since KCK was a post 128 delivery MD-11, it had the extended inlet.

I don't expect this to be taken into account on the Gemini model

Learned two new things about the MD11 then! Extended bulge and different flap system. Did it require extra training for the pilots?

Yeah I 'Amy Johnson' PH-KCA' was delivered polished.

Forum member Ledoctor brought it to my attention last year.

I would take this one in a heartbeat aswell. The PH-KCA Amy Johnson was the only md11 delivered in full colors to klm. All the others were painted at AMS. If I am correct, Amy didn't fly with passengers with her polished belly.

Hey crownvic----nothing less than a 1/200 KL M11 would "pull me out of retirement" here. 🙂 (though would actually prefer to see a final scheme re-release even more----any chance of getting say PH-KCE or KCC? You know KL sells every time! 😄 (KCE seems to be the world's fave MD-11, based on how many models there are of it in plastic and metal in every scale)

Anyways, meant to get back to this thread earlier---only just now saw the actual release pic at GJ's site.

Honestly I'm flabbergasted GJ actually DID make the late-style flap hinges for the mold. They're not a very common thing on the -11.
