This craft is a full stock 1:1 replica of the McDonnell Douglas MD-11, this craft makes use of no DLC parts or mechanisms. While I have built a number of large planes, it has been nearly a year since I've built an actual airliner, so I decided to tackle another one. I wanted to built a tri-jet as I had simply never done one before, and true to form I chose the largest tri-jet ever built, The Md-11, a largely altered variant of the DC-10. This craft features refined versions of building techniques I had used in the past, as well as new ones. In total it took 3 months of on and off work to complete, as various difficulties and roadblocks would regularly halt progress on the build. This craft also utilizes a perfected form of the custom actuated wing surfaces used on my Drehmeister fighter craft to replicate the large control surfaces located at the base of the wing. basically every section of the craft had to be reworked or rebuilt from scratch, this made the build the slowest going out of any craft I have built proportional to it's size. However, I feel it payed off as the final product is notably more polished than any of my previous builds.

This craft is a stock replica of the Boeing 747-8. This craft was largely inspired by the excellent works of Gman_builder and DavidN, whose accounts you can find here, https://kerbalx.com/DavidN https://kerbalx.com/Gman_builder For this craft I aimed to replicate the exact look, design, and function of the 747-8 as closely as I could, the resulting aircraft is my most accurate replica to date. One huge source of part count is the GEnx-2B turbofans, which all together contribute about 600 parts. Admittedly a lot for a purely aesthetic component. However, the craft would have looked a bit silly with just the dinky Goliaths powering it.
