Saw these too late yesterday-evening.
Excellent special releases to say the least!!!Have to add all 3 of them to my collection!

I always wanted a Pomair Ostend DC8-30 and I thought this would never be made in 1/200.... until now!Thanks to AMS and of course Andrew K.

As a young boy I saw these at Ostend Airport and since those days in the early 1970's I never forgot it and now it's coming from AC200, the best mould on the market....

Thought you would like these Filip, nothing finer then see your youth memories back in 1:200! I knew you requested a Pomair DC8 a while ago so this must be a great Christmas surprise for you!

I picked up the KLM and Pomair. One of my themes are Belgian planes and a minor focus on KLM. I agree, Great looking models!

Indeed excellent special releases but that MAC livery is unbelievably ugly. Unfortunately Martinair never flew the DC-8-32 in the updated red/white livery. Hopefully also a DC-8-55 release in the future including the DC-9 and F-28.

Nice looking 8s . Inflight200 did the DC-9 several years ago...

Wow Pomair. I worked some of their flights out of LAX back in the day.

Very nice surprise(s) indeed!!
The other Pomair livery would also be welcome as well as the BIAS one.
DC8-30 Pomair reg OO-TCP also flew a while in Air France livery (bare metal with reg OO-TSP)
Just an idea for Andrew

No not really. I find them interesting, but the DC-8 is still a Martinair machine with KLM titles, just like the announced Whitebox Aeroflot IL 62 with (even less) KLM titles. Had either of these gone through a full KLM repaint job, I would be definitely interested., especially in the IL 62.
