Default A few suggestion for Aeroclassics

...and a DC-9-80 mould would be most welcome - also known as MD-80 series. (the AC DC-9 is excellent, so would be an MD-80 i assume)
.
I also won't complain about a 1/200 version of these.

AC did an Adria DC-9-30 years ago but in very limited quantities and it is now very hard to find. Maybe it is time for a new release with 'Inex Adria' titles, or as you suggest, a DC-9-50 series.

As for a MD-80 mould, I think it is a good idea but I would prefer a DC-9-10 first.

Aeroclassics' DC-9-30 mould is one of 1:400's best. More classic DC-9's are always welcome. Some USA classics that would be welcome:

I agree, a DC-9-10/15 would be well received. There are some pretty good MD-8X moulds out there. I hope if someone new tackles the MD-8X series, they make it at least as good of a mould as Dragon/Jet-X. In my opinion, it's still the best mould out there.

Good idea, i like the short DC-9 ... I wished there would be made more use of the 1/200 aswell. Could AC please come up with another Adria DC-9-30 once again, maybe with a different registration. I missed that one.

A 2019-quality DC-9-15 would have lots of possibilities, too. AC already has excellent -30 and -50 moulds. A -10 would make sense. As usual, I love my USA Regulation 70's and Deregulation 80's-90's classics:

Aeroclassics' DC-10 moulds are some of 1:400's best. Though the -10 wing apparently should be tweaked a bit as it differs from the -30 (Transpac can explain).

I have two copies of the Gemini British Caledonian DC-10. Would love to see an Aeroclassics!

Gag. Take that nonsense to the dark side of the forum.

The Dash-30’s have an increased wingspan over the Dash-10’s, not unlike the L1011-500 over the L1011-1.

It’s not a huge difference, but it’s definitely profound enough to be noticed in 1:400 scale. Especially when compared side to side, the additional 5 foot span on each wing is clear.

Agreed, and I'd love to replace my GJ -30 example of this scheme as well.

I also would like to second the Legend request since I used to see them in Dallas all the time - missed out on flying them though.

It can't be rocket science to clone the AC DC-9-30 mould and do a 'cut-n-shunt' job to shorten the fuselage, surely?

I would like British Midland, Swissair and Saudi Arabian DC-9-10/15s

I think the wings are different as well? The list of potential worthy DC-9-10s is vast since almost everything made to date needs to be remade. Here's a list I had:

Aeromexico (multiple schemes)
Aero California
Air California
Air Canada
Air Florida (multiple schemes)
Air West (multiple schemes)
Allegro
Alisarda
Aviacsa
Bonanza Air Lines
British Midland
Continental Airlines (multiple schemes)
Delta Air Lines (multiple schemes)
East African Express
Eastern Air Lines (multiple schemes)
Finnair
Hughes Airwest
Itavia
KLM (multiple schemes)
Midway Airlines (multiple schemes)
Midwest Express
North Central
Northwest Airlines (multiple schemes)
Ozark Airlines
Republic (multiple schemes)
Southern Airways (multiple schemes)
Spantax
Swissair
TAESA
TAT
Trans Texas
Texas Int
TWA (multiple schemes)
ValuJet
Viasa
West Coast

I didn't realise Saudia Arabian had DC-9-10s

Jesus and the saints. I had to do a triple-take on this post.

With a quick scroll over the thread, all I saw in my peripheral was "cun_-n-shunt"... I'll let you fill in the rest. But, it definitely gave me a moment of pause. I never figured old Adrian to be that crass, so I got a good laugh from it.

Completely different wing; could never get away with it, otherwise it would have been done years ago!!
