Default KLM DC-10-30 PH-DTA cutaway model 1/144

The "Dildo Ten", "Diesel Ten", "Big Fat Mama" or a few less attractive nicknames . The PH-DTA; the prototype of the DC-10 Series 30 has flown in KLM colors from March 1974 until the summer of 1995. It then went briefly to Kras Air (N525MD) and final Continental Airlines (N12089). The unit was demolished in the US in 2001.

The model was first published by Revell in 1972 as Revell - Nr. H-119 "DC-10 Airbus". The second edition of 1973 (Western Airlines DC10 Spaceship) has new components and is the basis for all other expenses of this model. Several boxes were produced for various markets (US, Europe). For the series -30 Revell simply added the center gear to the standard series -10 model. This also applies to Revell - Nr. 4243, published in KLM livery marking the introduction of the type to the Netherlands and with a re-release in 1999.

Besides the center landing gear (which had to be adjusted) I had to add or improve a lot of other details, such as the cockpit windows, engine intakes, strakes on the engine cowlings, core section reversers, sealing plates, cargo doors and the longer wingroot fairing. As a nice wink to nostalgia I created the full interior and made it visible like the famous models that use decorated the travel agents in the '70 and '80. I've used the KLM corporate image book from that era to make sure that the details of the interior were correct. And that was also a reason for this cutaway; nice contrasting colors that are so typical for the periode of "All the leaves are brown", long beards and platform shoes

Here is my version. It is not perfect, but it'll do for me. I've learned a lot and fortunately there is still room for improvement so to say The weathering was new to me (may less), the interior detail should be more complex the next time. And I should start to work with an air brush. An extensive build log was written on the Dutch site Modelbrouwers.nl modelbouw ? Toon onderwerp - KLM DC-10-30 PH-DTA cutaway model 1:144 KLAAR!

Cheers, Vintage Jet

'It is not perfect, but it'll do for me. I've learned a lot and fortunately there is still room for improvement so to say.' If this is imperfection, gimme some. Fabulous. Later, Doug

This is really a nice custom model. In my opinion there is a perfect balance between detail and scale. No more detail necesary. Colors for interior are perfectly choosen. Remember me the typical photos of the completed model that Revell uses to print on both sides of the kit boxes not only on civil kits but also in military ones. Not very detailed but realistic anyway to attract the atention of the buyer. At least it happens to me because I have a cupboard plenty of them...

Great work!! I can´t wait to see the Transavia Carvelle.

Thanks for the interest and all the nice comments. I would like to say thank you to two forum members whom I only know of their work in this forum; Brad Shinn and Jesus. In my opinion both master builders who not only set a standaard (Brad in plastic, Jesus in Paper), but who also inspired me to continue to reach for the best. And that is an ongoing challenge!

pls, checkout my little ode to Jesus on the Dutch model builders forum. Albeit in Dutch, the pictures (with permission from Jesus) speak for themselves. Most of his comments are still available here on this forum.

And please also check my full KLM '70 retro fleet. Finally it is ready.

Hi Robertjon5, I guess that request applies for the BOAC 747 cutaway, you were hunting for two years ago? I would do it for you if I only had the time...
But you can easily do it your self. Just build the Revell cutaway 747 1/144 kit. All the details are correct for your beloved aircraft. You only need an aftermarket BOAC decal sheet, but that's not to difficult either. Some glue, some paint and a lot of time and patience and you build the most beautiful en most rewarding addition to your vintage fleet of BOAC aircraft!

cheers VJ
