  1. The Hasegawa is a simpler-to-build curbside kit. That's car model speak for one-piece body and no engine detail.
  2. In 1/72, forward fuselage stretch is 40.2mm, aft fuselage stretch is 22.9mm, and each wingtip stretch is 8.4mm. The angle of the -30's wing leading edge is a little less swept back then the -10, so the chord increases slightly over the -10 as you near the tip. Here's a plan you can use: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/attachments/dc-9-30-wing-stations-jpg.38562/ The stabilisers on the -10 were mounted perfectly horizontal, but from the -30 onwards, they are mounted with 3 degrees anhedral. Also from the -30 onwards (just to be nit-picky), the engine pylons were mounted half a window frame further aft. This page is handy: https://www.airlinercafe.com/page.php?id=396 Cheers!

    Ray is correct. Doyusha did do a 1/200 DC-8-61 with 2 different box tops: https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/3/6/7/1139367-27767-88-pristine.jpg https://www.kingkit.co.uk/uploads/shop/large/81903P1010030.JPG
  4. Decal coming from 26... http://www.26decals.com/epages/62035508.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/62035508/Products/STS44326
  5. PW engines were in the JAL & JTA boxings of the -200, and also the Lauda Air & JAL boxings of the -300.
  6. G'day Rob! No, the B1 did not have Krueger flaps. They were introduced with the B2-200. Scott.
  7. I think Mike's referring to the pic of the KKK crew in front of their biplane.
  8. External width is 2.81m (9' 3") https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:ATRv1.0.png
  9. My logic had sound intentions, but I have since found some videos which prove I was only half-right. Both engine types rotate clockwise as you look at them from the front. (Which is counter-clockwise to the forward direction of travel) GE engines: Air Canada 787 pushback and engine start RR engine: British Airways engine run Engines are windmilling counter-clockwise, but as they fire up, they turn clockwise (look at the squiggle painted on the centre cone). I concede that the nacelles are slightly different (regardless of vents) - but in 1/144 scale (or indeed 1/200) the differences are negligible at best. 99.5% of spectators wouldn't notice anyway! Just enjoy your build Michael, we look forward to your progress. Cheers!
  10. The 787 uses a common nacelle and pylon for both the RR and GE engine options. The way to tell them apart is by the direction that the fan turns. Looking head-on, the RR turns counter-clockwise and the GE turns clockwise. Upon checkng my kit, Revell have supplied the RR fans. (Revell give you both engine logo options on the decal anyway)
  11. Note that these renders depict the later spec fairings around the wing and stabiliser roots, like the MD-11.
  12. Probably this one: http://media.regosearch.com/acphotos/au/10586-AIS-68316c3b5b.jpg Cheers!
  13. Phil, It's a fairing for the satellite based Wi-Fi antennae array called Ku-Band. Explanation and close-up photo with the fairing removed here (scroll down a bit) : https://thepointsguy.com/2015/11/how-in-flight-wi-fi-works/ Scott.
  14. With my recent family health and work situations (and related loss of mojo), this was soon doomed never to make the deadline. (Haven't even glued the fuselage together!) Oh well, I guess there is always the WIP & RFI forums... Another Airliner GB would be nice too.
