Default Douglas jet family

With the new addition of an IF DC-10, my DC jet family is almost complete.

Congratulations. Wow, the new InFlight DC-10-10 (Roll out ship one in house colors) I've been waiting for a picture and it looks great, as does the rest of the "family" I'll have to patiently wait for mine to arrive in the hopefully near future.

You say almost complete. What other DC Jets model or models are you looking to add to make it complete?

Nice collection and thank you for posting your new addition.

Nice jet collection.
I would say the missing type is the DC-8 series. Not sure if any 'House Colors' DC-8s have been made in 1/200 scale though.

Very nice addition, would love to see more pics of the DC10. I have the previous release (DC10-30 housecolor. ), I recon this is a DC10-10?

@charlialpha; aeroclassics did a DC-8 in house colors (ship one)

You ID can tell you are a real DC fan.

In my opinion, the missing ones are as follow which are all difficult to find now:

Western Model DC-8

Jet-X MD-80 in purple livery

Jut-X MD-92 in purple livery

The three you listed are very rare today for sure. I am thankful to have them in my collection. In addition to clearedfor...'s post, I was able to find a Western Models Ship One DC-8, on eBay. But the person is asking for a very high price. I didn't see any MD-92 UHB in House Colors. Sure hope you can add them to your collection someday.

Great models. I'm a big DC fan because my dad worked for KLM--grew up flying on most of them. At least Boeing has kept the DC logo.

The DC-10 is a real beauty, so is the MD-11 but JC Wings should also release this one as well..

Wow, not even a month after your request do they release Ship Two but Ship Three as well. Good call.

Beautiful collection!! If that is the DC-10-10, I guess you guys in China get it first. Now if only a DC-8-70 series!

I'm sorry, but isn't there more of a difference between the initial and later DC-10s, other than the center undercarriage? Wing fairing for instance, which seems to be incorrect here?
