Agree - the detail in those pics is superb, the gear struts are a work of art. It’s looking very good indeed, lots of potential here for some cracking releases on this mould.

An Air Siam DC-10 could be an idea as a follow up to the A300, they only had 1 from new, but could have 2 versions, one with "Thailand's First DC-10" on #2 intake.
