  1. I've been asking around for info on the 7C, and it's a short-lived but epic tale around the battle between Douglas and Lockheed to dominate the Atlantic crossing commercial airlines business. While the Constellation was being stretched and remodelled to spearhead the TWA fleet, PanAm urged Douglas for one more upgrade to the DC 7. Something that could get them to Shannon Galway for a refuelling stop. And the 7C was the result. Lengthening the fuselage for more seats, and the wingspan for more fuel, the latest Pratt and Whitney radials and a heightened fin to steady her up, Douglas produced their ultimate piston-engined airliner to go head-to-head with the fabulous Connie. And all this just as the DH Comet was whistling into service, and the 707 was about to take over the world! That list of mods is relevant to this build. Because that's basically what I've got to do. Revell have done precious little to upgrade their 1955 kit of the DC7 to make a 7C So it's gonna be me doing a hatchet job on an old quirky kit. "Steep learning curve" would sum it up nicely. I've got a helpful bunch of information from several BMers on a thread that I'll try to get a link to. I'm much obliged to them all! Now, where did I put my modelling axe??
