Just a few here, but there are dozens to be made, and which probably never will be made if not one manufacturer pushes the boundaries beyond the two or three models per year. I did not know where to post this because it concerns both, 1/400 and 1/200. 1/400 a little more as the MD-80 seems to be completely forgotten. Which is not a problem because DW had the best mould and they are not around anymore and GJ released a Meridiana 83 once, but to be honest the GJ version is outdated. And it is the only mould still being "active". ..so no big deal that GJ does not release that much MD-80 in 1/400.
Panda or NG would you mind developing a GOOD MD-80 mould.
It is not up to todays standards. And I bet you'll never see any of the above aircraft being released as diecast replicas when Gemini keeps being the only manufacturer using an MD-80. Well, maybe JCW will, but how many decades are you willing to wait....

Perhaps put the aircraft type in the subject header? I almost didn't click on the thread.
After the 747's, NG absolutely should do an MD-80 mould. Both screwdriver-tail and pointy-tail. Gemini and JC don't seem to use theirs much, and JetX / Dragon's seems to have left the market with them.
Some of my MD-80 wishlist, from my Flickr listing:
