Nice additions. I like number one the best of the 3, but like the Northwest Orient over this one with the clean red tail (No NW logo on it), but still this is a close second! Thanks for sharing.

Very nice indeed. It's a pitty that only inflight/ jfox make the DC10 in 1:200. Love the mold, don't get me wrong, but an update wouldn't hurt imo. Like for instance improved magnetic gears and painted wheels.

Oh boy, those are all so pretty! For whatever reason I do like that kind of off grey/silver on the third aircraft the best, I guess that's just because it's so different from most liveries seen on carriers that are around today. But I can only imagine how fast it would get dirty...

+1, great models.



Oh wait, crownvic will think I am a bot.....


Seriously - great arrivals, but the older the livery, the better it looks. Congratulations.

Bless you. You truly know what is important in life as demonstrated by your exquisite taste in Airline.

I've been tempted many times to pick up the thermometer model in order for a proper NWO custom. However, I'm not sure what lies beneath the white nacelles. I have a feeling it would be a neutral grey or something.

There was an AV200 (or JFox; I forget) NWO model on greedbay for a split second the other day. I applaud the individual who decided to give her a good home. It's been MANY years since I've seen one appear.

With my growing contempt of these manufacturers, I may eventually bite the bullet and do a custom if it means having a proper polished belly.
