Default Aeroclassics DC8's & Gemini Delta A310 Landed

Picked these three beauties up this morning, three new DELTA aircraft to join, my DELTA fleet. the first two are made by Aeroclassics and are both DC-8-61's' one in the widget delivery livery N822E and the other one, in the DELTA widget standard livery N1300L, both models have polished fuselage, the third one is made by Gemini and is an A310-300 N818PA also in the widget livery, but does not have the magnetic landing gear.

High Graham, at present I have 123 DELTA models in 1/200 these are all made by the various makers, all with genuine registration number's that are different
and none have been altered, plus I have 1 custom which Stang made a few years ago so total 124, then I have 22 in 1/400 and that's only because these have not been made in the 1/200 scale as yet.

Great models, with Aeroclassics, you can't be wrong.

The A 310 looks very good, waiting for the GE powered version with an AF livery.

Awaiting the '8s as we speak...

A -61 or -63 at 45 degrees on must be the biggest test of a lens' depth of field...

124 Deltas.. that's going some...

Holy crow, I guess I missed that the -61's were being released. Luckily I was able to find a site to pre order N1300L. Most online retailers aren't even showing these. Been on my bucket list for a long time.

My first commercial flight was on a DL -61 back in 1973 from DTW to ATL.

Very nice. Love the stretch eights. Always wanted a Saturn Airways -61.

Very nicearrivals Stevec. Strange that the A310 doesn't have magnetic gears anymore like the PA did. Allthough the magnets on the PA 310 are very weak. Love the DC8-61, what a great new mold.

Hi Robert, They are slightly but not a deal breaker, there are worse models out there.

Delta A310 already improved a tiny bit over the Pan Am release by Gemini adding the belly antenna that was missing from Pan Am.
