  1. After the MD-11 (link), Eastern Express is working on a 1/144th McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 kit. Source: http://www.pas-decals.ru/forum/novosti/1078-novinki-vostochnyj-ekspress?start=405#36881 V.P.
  2. 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
  3. In case anyone is interested Ray Charles currently has EE DC-10s at £35 plus postage. He's offering a tempting range of decals including Iberia, Sabena and Monarch. It may also be worth noting that Ray is intending to stop production of laser decals at the end of this year. Dave G (PS I have no connection with Ray except as a customer)
  4. I received this kit from a modelling friend who got it from someone else too. It was already started,although in very bad condition.It must have been started some 20+ years ago with some parts already glued and terribly painted. My friend was unsure what to do with it,so he gave it to me,hoping that I might have some use for it,being as a parts donator for my other DC-10s. I thought I try to save it and repaint and finish the build.But as the Revell kit has its issues,I tried to correct some areas and enhance the overall look of the kit. Changes / corrections I made; - Correcting the nose,cockpit area - Rework the engines ( extending the mountings and rework the intakes and exhausts) - adding the APU - extend the wingbox to match the DC-10-30 (kit is more a DC-10-10) - lowering the slats like they were when the DC-10 was on the ground It took quite a while to get all as it should be,the wingbox was the most time consuming area. The decals come from 26,NAZCA and Authentic airliners. I am not completely satisfied with the outcome but it was a good exercise for my other Revell DC-10s I might do a WIP on my next Revell DC-10 to show the conversions Enjoy,
  5. This aeromexico DC10 will be a bare metal finish with orange decals. the grey areas are the only parts not to be a metal finish. I'm using xtreme metals matte aluminium on top of a glossy black finish for maximum effect. The matte aluminium is going on last as its not advisable to use masking tape on it as it will just peel away and its horrible to try and blend in a re-spray. The grey areas will be masked off prior to spray
  6. McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 1/144 Aeromexico XA-DUH Kit - Airfix Scale 1/144 Decals - 26decals This livery was worn by a pair of 2 DC-10s XA-DUG and XA-DUH delivered to the airline in 1974 original thread is here
  7. Hi folks, this one from my collection. Homemade decals, automotive paint. LanChile leased a Laker Dc-10 in late 1980, then added four more from PanAm and Air New Zealand. We operated them until 1986 when they were replaced by the "all-new" Boeing 767-200. The Dc-10 was LanChile's first wide-body airliner, flying primarily on high density routes to the United States (Miami, New York, Los Angeles). CC-CJT was delivered new to Air New Zealand on 10.11.77, then started flying with Lan on 13.06.82 before being transfered to American Airlines on 17.06.86. It should be scrapped by now as far as I know. Hope you like it! Ignacio
  8. Seeing Radleigh's DC-10 thread has prompted me to post a few from another recent DC-10 retirement. On the 11th April 2014 Netherlands Air Force DC-10 T-255 made its last flight from Eindhoven to Newquay Airport where it will be scrapped. Fortunately the DC-10 arrived and parked directly outside the Classic Air Force enclosure, unfortunately it only stayed there a couple of hours before it was towed away to its final resting place. A RNLAF C-130H accompanied the DC-10 to collect the crew and some equipment. Final landing at Newquay Crossing the Runway: Heading towards the CAF enclosre. Unloading equipment: C-130H arrives. Crew munch some sandwiches before the flight home: C-130H leaving: DC-10 is towed away to be scrapped:
  9. Hey All I finished this quite some time ago, but never got around to taking photos of it. It happliy resides on top of my friends TV lol. Its the Revell SAS DC-10-30.
