Default AC200 Eastern DC-8-50 photo anyone?

Anyone got a good photo of the the model in the title with the reg #N8781 or N8608?

the only place i can find a pic is at Adamjets site and it looks like the hockey stick colors are too bright for my tastes and wont match the "correct" colors that i recall while working at MIA in 1977 and that match my IF722.

the right shade of blues imo....

Well thanks for the link of the actual model photographed by a retailer. Although she is a fine model, it simply isn't time period correct as far as the colors go unfortunately. Not only did i work for NAL, i went to George T. Baker aviation school across the street (Le Jeune Rd.) from the runway Easterns were landing over all day long, and never recall seeing one with such vivid blues. Maybe if i let the model sit on my rooftop for about a year she'll fade?
