Very cool model! Was it a kit or scratch-built? What are you using to power it?

Any progress is good!

Is there a forum with the specs of this monster in it?

As your MD-11 looks very similar to the four Rauch MD-11s in this video and as there is also a picture of this plane on Norbert's site I simply asked him.
He remembers that in 1995 he had sold one of his MD-11 short-kits to Bill Hempel (Hobby Barn). The guys there made their own mold using the Rauch parts for their private use only and not for selling kits (copyright !).

So I think we are both right. Your plane is made from the Hobby Barn's mold but originally it is a Rauch plane.
