    I didn't pull the trigger on this one. I'll probably regret it later on. I'd much rather pay triple the price in the aftermarket!
    The DC-8 is the best commercial supersonic aircraft ever built!
    OK, so it was only one flight, for a short time, and in a shallow dive. It still counts!

    I wonder why the Ice Patrol version was not done?

    If they do Ice Patrol I'll spring for that one. That and my ochre Braniff 188

    Collectablejets and Adamsjets both sold out. Has anyone seen it still available on another site?

    Be nice if they could but how? That a/c has that tear drop shaped observation blister and side looking ventral rader. Omitted in 1/400 was an `ok' compromise but not in 1/200. It would need an unorthodox mold mod whether they actually went for an expensive clear insert or molded a raised blister and painted it Corgi style . Hate being a downer but my guess is it would be too risky commercially.

    Not really as Western only makes 50-75 of each model and I guarantee that many people would buy.....I would

    They would sell out in a day or two......hump or no hump.

    I agree whole heartedly. Would hope to get one for sure.

    AND the one in CANADIAN blue and gray.....
