  1. Eastern Express was not known for quality kits not too long ago. But they changed significantly and their Boeing 717 (McDonnell-Douglas MD-95) kit is a superb kit in every aspect. They recently released other Douglas airliners,such as the MD-87,DC-9-30 and MD-80 along with others. The MD-87 is already in my stash and the MD-80 is to follow but the Boeing 717 is now the first one that I have built. It is very detailed,although in my opinion they overdid it with the landing gear.It looks teriffic but there are so tiny parts,its almost impossible to hold them with a tweezer.If they snip off...its a victim for the carpet monster...it happened to the front landing gear which I had to replace with a piece from a AZ-Model DC-9-30... The fit is quite good but its not Revell Airliner standard and all parts need careful cleaning and dryfitting.If one's aware of that,the build is straight forward. The other thing that impresses me with those new Eastern Express kits, is their quality improvement on their decals.They are superb and nice to work with and Eastern Express offers some very interesting paint schemes on each of their airliners,which makes it difficult to make a choice... I really liked the Qantas Link scheme with the Tasmanian Devil I painted the whole fuselage with Revell gloss white,the wings are Testors aircraft grey and the metall areas are Revell metallics. Clear coated with Future. Hope you like her
