I like the Delta, and the DC house colors. I might buy these, but will wait for others to buy first to make sure the glue is sticking.

Yup, the model maker did and it looks like he did okay.
In the Fanjet configuaration, Ship One flew for the first time on 20Dec60 probably looking a great deal like this model.

Don


p.s. The classic lines of Ship One on its earliest "maiden flight" still beg for diecast representation however!

Wow! Every one fantastic!

Retro 4-holers - you gotta luv 'em. AeroClassics' DC-8s and 707s are simply superb !!! Can't wait for Air New Zealand on this DC-8 mould.

One of my most wanted models finally, the SAA A300B2 in 70's colors. Great.

But once again grey pylons on early A300. Is it so hard to paint them silver?

I'd welcome if anybody could post a pic of the real ZS-SDB (or SDD for that matter) showing the titles the way they are represented on the model - I'm talking about the lack of blank spaces (SUID_-_AFRIKAANSE) on the model. Never seen this on the real thing, the port side SAL titles (SDB/SDD) had these spaces while the starboard versions (on SDA/SDC) didn't have them on all pics I've seen
