DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

Ciao my friends.
In these months i worked hard to check and place my new generation models, all my 1:500 NG models!
I decided to storage all the same models together and not for airlines, so all the B747 are with B747, B777 with the B777, A330 with A330 and so on.
I also decided to put all the old generation models in a box because, honestly speaking, they are very old and not so nice. But they are the story of 1:500.
So, looking at the many DC-10's, happy for Herpa new mould and for Aero500 new life, i decided to start this thread where i will share all my DC-10's and i will decide which is the most beautiful. I am preparing the photos.
Thanks for your comments, suggestions, participation, photos as always.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

I am looking forward to the pictures. At the moment, the Laker Skytrain is not available. So the best DC-10 until now for me is the Herpa Biman.

And when I read "DC-10" somewhere, I hear this sound. It's just music.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

Best DC-10 in my opinion, not mould but best livery or not-livery, the DC-10 model i love more so far among all the 1:500 DC-10's new generation, without a reason but just because a special collector-heart feeling.
And i already know who is the winner, a model of some years ago...

Really like the new SQ DC-10, but I'm getting my hopes up for the KLM DC-10.

Air New Zealand DC-10 ZK-NZM: active from 1973 to 1982, then used by American Airlines as N137AA. This AA registration will be the DC-10 aanounced by Herpa for March-April 2018.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

About ANZ, there has been the disaster of flight 901, Mount Erebus disaster.
Between 1977 and 1979 Air New Zealand performed Antarctic sightseeing flights using DC-10's.
On November 28th 1979 a DC-10 ZK-NZP with 257 people on board, instead of flight to McMurdo Sound crashed into Mount Erebus (3.800 meters high) on Ross Island.
This tragedy because the night before the flight " the coordinates of the flight path were corrected without inform the flight crew of the change" so the computer directed the DC-10 into the path of Mount Erebus.
All the people on board were killed.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

Next model is Western DC-10 N821L, active from 1981 to 1983 and then, from 1983 to 1985, flying with Air Pacific with the same registration.
A wonderful model, one of the beat of my 1:500 DC-10 collection.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

Lufthansa DC-10 D-ADAO. This airplane served Lufthansa from 1973 to 1995, then passed to Sun Country Airlines as N601GC.
The 1:500 model is Herpa, before the new mould, so even if it is NG the mould is not so good.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

JAT DC-10 by Herpa: the same situation of Lufthansa D-ADAO, not the best mould even if NG but a JAT widebodies. The DC-10, like the B747-100 and -200, was a symbol of the "power" of an airline, the flagship to send in the most important airports of the world.
Introtuced in 1978, the DC-10 was preferred at the B747 and replaced the B707.
YU-AMB entered in service in 1979 and was scrapped in 2005.

Re: DC-10 tribute and the best DC-10 in 1:500.

This old Herpa mould is simply hideous! Wasted releases in my opinion!
