Default Theoretical DC-8-72

Could you possibly take a donor DC-8-7x CFM engines and carefully remove them and add them to a DC-8-62 to create a DC-8-72. I don’t see any DC-8-72 in 1:400 in the DIMA database. I’ve had newer releases arrive with the engines and pylons cleanly separated from the wing and was wondering if some moderate pressure on the CFMs and PWs would be possible to swap them.

The pylons for the two engines are noticeably different, so it still wouldn't look right.

Welp that’s all I needed to know. Thanks for the info!

Still would rather see a DC-9-10 series made, theorectically.

I've thought about getting one of the excess ATI DC-8-73s that GJ made and trying to cut segments out of the fuselage to make a -72. It would look terrible if not cut precisely straight, so I haven't done anything other than buying an extra copy of it. But later this year that model may meet my bench mill.


I really want to see the -72.

I'd like to see a DC-9-15 in 1:200 of the Continental Golden Jet!

The pylons look the same to me on all the 8's CFM56s. What's different in your opinion?

Yes, I agree. Highest priority for me.

They are. But he's talking about putting the CFM56s from one model onto a DC-8-62 which has different pylons.

I took it to mean that the donor aircraft would be either a 71 or 73 Series. In which case they would all be identical.

The engines on the 73s and 71s out there are separate from the pylons, which are moulded into the wing as far as I can remember.

The -61 pylon went over the wing. The -71 did away with that. So it looks like you could use that to make a -62 which doesn't have pylons over the leading edge.

I meant adding DC-8-7x engines to a DC-8-62. Since the 62 and 72 are the same less the engines as far as I’m aware/know, this seems like the fastest was to make a conversion. Although please let me know how cutting a fuselage down to -72 goes.

It's probably going to go horribly, but at some point I'm going to try it.


The pylons on the 62 and 72 are different.
