Eastern Airlines DC-8
September 28, 2013 in Aviation
This is the 1/144 Minicraft DC-8-63 built straight from the box. This particular a/c, N8755, was the 503rd out of a total of 556 DC-8s built. It was delivered to Eastern on 14 December 1969. It was later operated as a freighter by Arrow Air and Airborne Express. The Minicraft DC-8s are some of the nicest airliner kits ever made. This one assembled without so much as a dab of filler.
