Default Models with flaps in "Takeoff setting"

We now have options to get models with full flaps down, which is great if you want to display a model that is either on final approach, or has just landed. But what about if you want to display one that is taxiing to the runway, or aligning for takeoff, or is rotating and taking off?

I propose a "Takeoff setting" flaps option for models, where the flaps are extended, but not all the way down.

Example pics of takeoff flaps setting, using a 747-400 because I like 747s

Nice shots, but I prefer the full flaps and slats setting with everything hanging out. Doug

I think the next step would be full landing configuration? Spoilers and reverse thrust. Not sure if that can be done, without increasing the cost of the model significantly?

Oh, that would be pretty nice too! I'd make room for this config as well

I like the idea of a ‘take off’ option. I think reverses deployed/spoilers up would be too tricky...

No one ever claps for takeoffs

Been banging on for that a lot on here. Simple to supply two engine sets that can be interchanged - one normal in flight config, and one set with thrust reversers deployed
