Default Latest Addition - Air Canada DC-9

My latest addition just arrived today after two weeks stuck in Canadian Customs.

A fellow contacted me through my website a month or so back and offered me his Dad's old model which was found in a 2nd hand shop in New Jersey in 1969. His Dad was a salesman with Curtis Wright aircraft parts and loved airplanes. Having lived in Montreal in the 1950's he was very familiar with Air Canada.

I have it posted here on my website. Air Canada Vintage Douglas Factory (DFM) Metal DC-9 | Skythings.ca

Your right there for sure Neil. It is now my favourite model in my collection. I had never held one prior to this one. They are very substantial and a work of art for sure.

And thanks to all the help from some members on this forum I should have a DFM reproduction stand and Douglas emblem to attach in the not to near future.

This week I received the reproduction stand for the DFM. A big thank you to several members on this forum who put me in touch with Gary Field who made the stand. Thank you to Gary who was first class.

I have updated the pictures on my website with the new stand.

Thanks for Posting! I have one as well. It was Air Canada but know it is in KLM colours. I will have it restored I hope this summer like yours. I guess they are close in serial numbers.
