There are a few fedex but i only go after the new gen ones so it's a bit harder to find

I only go after the new gen herpa stuffs as the older gen with non realistic landing gears are so gross! which is why it's harder to get stuffs also

Congratulations on that great acquisition Wildpig.
Are we going to see pictures of the models out of their boxes?

Cheers, Deephalo

Yes, let’s see them out of the box! And keep an eye out on eBay and various stores’ collection sales for StarJet’s FedEx MD-11. It was made like 20 years ago and is still better than Herpa’s current MD-11 model!

Out of the box? Out of question....lol... they belong inside the box and stack safely inside another big box which is stacked in my dark climate controlled closet....lol...

But i will try to get a few pics with them all together just once

I actually do have a 1/500 fedex 757 from sky500: https://database.diecastmodelaircraft.com/model/19500

will have to see about getting a 1/500 fedex 777 and md-11 somehow. But its extremely hard so far to find a new generation style 1/500 fedex 777 or MD-11 or DC-10..... Plenty of ugly geared old generation ones though...

I personally think collections look better out of the boxes but... you do what you like

Here's the DHL DC-8-73F. One of my favorite ones. I actually got two of them now. one for playing and a spare one stored away!

Also here's the FedEx 757-200F. The only FedEx 1/500 one with scaled landing gears (not the ugly old gen herpa, which there are plenty of those fedex ones around) i've been able to get my hands on ;(

Also here's the DHL 757-200F Eliska goes home

All out of the box!

Love the DHL DC-8! McDonnell Douglas truly enjoyed ridiculous stretches. I ordered this model like a decade ago, but had gone a bit crazy with model acquisitions at the time, so I canceled it. Regret that one!

Yep, I like these skinny long planes like the 757-300, dc8-73, and a340-600

I hope to be able to get the another 1/500 fedex with the new generation gears ...
