The Cockpit/Nose UAL-71 Bird Is Identical To All Other GJ DC-8-61s, Including The Mainliner & Delta.
However I See What He's Talking About. The Framework/Cockpit Panels Appear Vertical In The Sample Pic, Giving It A DC-6 Look. Let's Hope That's Not Another Scrow Up!
You Guys Will Be Happy To Know There Is Much Greater Detail On The New Wing. Yes, New Wing Mould.
Both On Top & The Bottom. The New Wing Has 4 Little Strakes On The Bottom Of Each Wing That Were Never On The Original -61 Mould.
Better Scribing & Detail On The Control Surfaces Both Top & Bottom & A New Inspar Color That Is Kinda Like Corrogaurd But Much Lighter.
Very Nice.
BTW Both UAL Schemes Look Great Next To Each Other, Even Though UAL Mainliner Was LOONG Gone Before The Inception Of Beer Kegs...

...Me Happy.

Glad to see this pic referenced again~ I looked forever to find it last year. It was a one off airplane. New fan engines were installed but the the old turbojet trailing edge pylons were left intact. Every other conversion had the "updated" srs 50/61 type pylons.

Cool, I never knew that about N8008D.

Re: the GJ cockpit windows, Previous DC-8's had perfectly acceptable cockpit windows. See Here

Rick,

If you ever see a Widget DC-8-63, it will be a fantasy model because Delta never operated them.

Zach,

In spite of his keen observational skills, this model is probably not David's area of particular expertise. However, if he held the model in his hands, he'd be able to tell you whether or not the Widgets were wonky or spot on!

I'm Pretty Sure I Seen One In A Douglas Book, However That Was A Few Years Ago. But It Struck Me At The Time Because Of The White Engines. Mabe I'm Mixing It Up With Eastern, Or Did DL Actually Have A -63 For A Brief Time?

Oh, & That's What A Hin-Dawg Is...

Cockpit windows are spot on and very angular. I have the United and it looks superb. The photo above does not depict the cockpit windows very well.

You can rest easy and put this one to bed, Delta Air Lines never operated the DC-8-63, not even for a very brief time.

As my friend in Alaska has pointed out, Delta never operated DC 8-63s or 62s for that matter. Delta operated 22 DC 8-51s, the first six being re-engined DC 8-11s that Delta, with United, introduced into commercial service. One of these crashed while being used as pilot trainer in New Orleans. Only the flight crew was onboard, but tragically the aircraft hit a motel near the airport and killed several people, including several high school students from a midwestern state who were there to perform in their marching band. The small community from which they came had worked long and hard for the students to afford the trip. Delta flew the bodies back home (I am thinking a town in Iowa, but I may be mistaken) in one their new (at the time) L 100 Hercules freighters. A senior Delta vice-president accompanied the bodies. He was told on arrival that while the residents appreciated Delta's free transportation of the remains, they didn't want to have anything to do with the airline ever again.

As an employee, I was told this antidote several times, and for years it remained THE most tragic episode in the history of the airline.

Another antidote as to the odd number (13) of DC 8-61s ordered. The story goes that C. E. Woolman, Delta's founding leader, originally thought to order 2 additional DC 8-61s as freighters. Woolman had a personal relationship with Donald Douglas Sr. Woolman would call Douglas on the phone and order airliners on his word alone. Eventually someone would get around to writing a contract, but Woolman's word was his bond. When the stretched Eights were proposed, Delta saw it as a means to haul large numbers of passengers and freight. The Viet-Nam War was ramping up, and the majority of the military training facilities were in the South and on Delta's network. It was a boom time for US airlines, but also a blessing and curse for airframe and engine manufacturers. Douglas could not keep up with orders for the new Eights and the new DC 9s also coming off the line. Delays piled on top of delays. The crisis would spell doom for Douglas and directly lead to its aquisition by McDonald. Delta had been assured delivery of its new Eights, and had sold seats on them. There was still bad memories at ORD when I was hired soon after this time about DC 8-61s being cancelled by lack of aircraft and several tired DC 7s flying extra sections to make up the shortfall in seats. Woolman got so fed up, so goes the story, that he cancelled his last two Eights and ordered L 100s instead.

Interestingly, the L 100s could not carry enought freight and so were taken back to the Lockeed plant at Marietta, Georgia for "stretching". They became L 100-20s. When the oil boom hit Alaska, they were sold for more than Delta paid for them. Although wide-bodies could make up for the gross loads, nothing could beat the Hercs for bulk space. They were a Godsend when an engine change was needed.
