I used to build lots of airliners but had lost a little interest over the last few years. However, I have always loved the MD-11 and when MicroMir released their’s in a 1/144th scale injection-molding I decided to have a go at it.
It’s your typical short-run kit with a bit of flash here and there and no locating tabs etc, but it does have lovely surface detail and although it didn’t have the quality of fit such as those from the latest Zvezda or Revell, it went together pretty well.
I bought the Eastern Express KLM edition of the kit, but I really like the colourful and non-white CityBird scheme so bought some aftermarket decals from Daco which, as usual went on perfectly.
Paints were from the Humbrol and Xtracolour enamel ranges, with a coat of Humbrol Satin Cote to finish off.
