Heres an idea for a new style of aircraft model. So most 1:400, 1:250 and 1:500 (and some others) models come with gear down. Now i think it would be cool if some models came out with flaps down. if you think about it a lot of the time the gear is down the flaps are as well. I dont know about anyone else but a 1:400 747-400 with full flaps would look pretty cool. you could even have one with speed brakes and reverse thrust.
does anyone know if any model company has tried this? or does this idea sound completely stupid?

By painting a MD-11 doors black you are effectively making them look open as they are up-an-overs. So should be easy enough to do. There is a 1/200 herpa A320 in AIr Berlin colours with open doors(same idea as above and so called opening cargo doors also. seems to be the way forward.
