Default One of the most underrated aircraft

I just say Maddog

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the best mould and they are not around anymore and GJ released a Meridiana 83 once, but to be honest the GJ version is outdated.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.

Much appreciated...Cheers!

Would LOVE to see a Compass Australia MD-80. Suprised Aeroclassics hasn't created an MD-80 mould? A true classics workhorse.
Here's my MD-80 wishlist:

The Gemini MD80 isn't a bad mold at all.

An MD80 mold would be great, especially if NG made it.
There's a swissair livery above I have never seen before, looks like the Balair livery with Swissair titles?

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....

Beaver tail or no Beaver tail? My guess is, it would need separate molds.

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:

Was going to suggest exactly these!


I'm amazed there's still no good mould in 400 scale and hope for NG to make one.

The Dragon Wings mold was great for its time before Gemini came around.

I hate to say it, but they need to start making models of any delta planes in the Ron Allen livery, especially the MD-80

Being someone who only collects current operator's that you'd see in Europe, there's only two I'd be interested in personally. I'm sure a MD mould would make many people happy though 👍🏻
