  1. This is the old Heller kit of the famous DC-10. In came out around 1975 with UTA markings and is still available now with Aero Mexico decals. The Swissair boxing came,as well as their 747 kit,in the 80s and offered decals for the earlier red stripe livery as well as the then new brown stripe livery. As with the 747 Swissair decals,the red stripe decals are also on the DC-10 kit way off shape,so the whole livery was painted on and only the logos and markings were used from the kit decals. Heller got the shape of the DC-10 quite right compared to the Revell and Airfix offerings,only the cockpit clear part is a little wrong.That can be corrected by using decals. I added those little fairings on the engine nacelles,seems only Hasegawa in 1/200 and Nitto in 1/100 had them included.All other manufacturers seemed to omit these parts for some reason. I also opened up the air inlets and backed them up with small parts of evergreen plastic under the cockpit as they were only scribed on the fuselage. The APU was also made of a small plastic tube as on the kit is nothing but a circle. The rest of the build is OOB and the parts went together without issues. Its a great kit in my opinion that builds up into a very nice DC-10,although the odd scale doesn't allow comparision to other airliner kits except Heller's . Paints are all Revell enamels,the decals come from the kit,door outlines and handles were obtained from a Revell A380 ! and the cockpit window comes from the 1/144 !! NAZCA detail set for the DC-10... A very detailed and nice decal set,but they went completely out of scale with the cockpit windows.But they match perfectly on the1/125 heller kit Enjoy
