One of my top early DW picks. Awesome mould and scheme. Bought it way back when it was released. Thanks for posting~

I still have mine on display. Nice model, and after all these years, still a nice model!

Still love mine as well. Was San Jose-Tokyo the first MD-11 route for AA?

Agree with all those who have posted above, it's a good model and is one of the models in my "1:400 MD-11" collection.

Plastic gears a little frustrating on these releases.
Some after-market diecast gears would be nice.

This was a release from years ago. Agree the gears pale in comparison to all metal ones from the same period by GJ, but I personally believe the newer rubber rolling gears will disintegrate long before the tougher plastic wheels from this gen model will. I would like to see DW do a metal gear but with metal hubs/hard plastic wheels.
