Received mine today....agree, she is a beauty. Simple and classic livery, nothing bloody fancy or all white. A simple but elegant livery and plane.

Re: MMP-Ace Pix

I like the different angles and perspectives that you use to photograph these beautiful airplane models; when I came across the Northwest Orient DC-10 I almost cried--such an amazing plane and great to have the other NW three-holer (727) waiting in the background. Makes for a nice tribute, and I immediately ordered one (from Hong Kong, no less--we are many MONTHS behind with our models in the US). Thanks for these superb pictures!

Thank you so much for your nice comment. Great that you spotted the little details in the unsharp background.

NORMALLY I would be able to show you 4 new models, but now it's only 1. Why? I REALLY was annoyed about 3 models:

1) China Eastern A350 = Cockpit windows are printed ridiculously high AGAIN. Looks very weird, especially compared with the LH A350 or SAS A350.

2) & 3) Cabo Verde 757 = I received two different noses (definitely from two different moulds) AND both didn't look like a B757 at all. On top I have to admit that I don't like the livery when I did a closer check-up. To me (!) it's ugly.

I was so annoyed about Herpa's quality issues that I sent these models back as fast as possible without taking pictures. Normally I have patience with Herpa but this time: Please without me. So the only model I can show you is the 737 MAX S7, which is quite good, although the winglets are quite rough.

Re: MMP-Ace Pix

Quality has been steadily worsening over the past few years thus I'm not surprised it has reached a 75% unsatisfied perentage for you. The S7 apart from the not-yet perfect B38M mould looks good though!

Re: MMP-Ace Pix

Nice photos MMP Ace, I like how you include a smaller bird from the same airline in the background.

Re: MMP-Ace Pix

I received 3 models today. The Beluga XL is really a masterpiece. To me it's perfect. When it's closed the part is made of metal and fits very very good. The other part is made of plastic and fits very well too.

The printing on the Choose Italy could be better, the Choose the USA ist really well done.

The Beluga looks very innovative with this design, I like it a lot!

Re: MMP-Ace Pix

Oldies but goldies: This beauty landed today after a long search. DC-10 collection is growing.

Re: MMP-Ace Pix

Nice beauty, will surely look nice next to the regular color Finnair DC-10!

PS: If you wish to get rid of the glue stains on the nose gear, you can try painting the tire using a black "sharpie" pen. I've done this before and it works!
