Minicraft DC-8-63 / -71 / -73 “Bagged Kit” are Here !

DRAW Decal arranged with Minicraft for a batch of their excellent 1/144 scale DC-8-63 / 71 / -73 kit as “bagged kits”.  The kit includes both PW JT3D ‘smooth cowl” engines as fitted to the DC-8-63 (as released by Minicraft with Eastern Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines markings), and the CFM56 engines that were fitted to the -71, -72 and -73 series (as released by Minicraft with Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Southern Airlines markings).  The kits include both the short and extended wingtips.

I am also offering the kit as a “package deal” with the Avigraphics DC-8 “windows & details” decal, or with a DRAW DC-8 decal, or with a TwoSix DC-8 decal.

DC-8 Conversions – Alternative Engines

The mold designers very thoughtfully included ‘cut here’ marks inside the fuselage as a guide to converting the kit to a series 62 / 72, and to all the shorter -11 through -51 aircraft.  Engines are available by Contrails and by BraZ to convert the kit to these other versions.
