    Does anyone know of a cardmodel of the Douglas DC-8?

    Prefer United Airlines livery, but anything would work.

    Thanks in advance!

    That's one I haven't seen. I have seen more Airliners recently, but not that one.

    RaccOOn,

    I know of 3 papermodels of the Douhlas DC-8:

    1-Veritas-bouwplaten: old Dutch kit from around 1960-1970. Not for sale anymore.
    2-Emsco-bouwplaten: also an old Dutch kit from around 1950. Not for sale anymore.
    3-Private design from a designer, who maybe not wants to be mentioned. Not for sale.

    It seems there is room for this airplane in paper!

    Hi My name is Phil
    I am creating a DC-8 I flew on a SAS one when I was young.
    It looks to be a BIG model maybe 4 feet in length! I am kind of weird and I like to build
    BIG models

    You may be surprised how many people would be interested in that. The Alan Rose DC-3 has a wingspan of over 6 feet, but it's only the front half of the plane. It is meant to stick out of a wall.

    Thanks for the responses. BIG is okay - it can always be scaled down. I'd be interested when you get it put together.
