      Looks like we'll finally get a CV-880 with correct engines and exhausts.

      Very nice! At the rate they're going, do we dare to dream for a Convair 990A...a real in-service/production example A version- with this level of quality? And yes, the Authentic Airliners example is indeed beautiful.

      So,

      Any update or news about the EE Convair 880? Seems like they put the CAD Drawings out there a pretty long time ago.

      Thanks,

      Mark

      There's always the F-RSIN Plastic one. Injected plastic.

      I hope you will forgive me for the shameless plug.

      Hi Laurent,

      I have that kit and it is a pretty good kit. I built the F-Resin 990 as well. They are both underscaled a bit compared to a 1/144 scale kit. The actual aircraft was 39.42M in length. Divided by 144 = .27375M = 27.4MM Assuming that I got the math correct, and the real aircraft is 39.42M long, a 1/144 Convair 880 should be just shy of27.4cm in length. I measured the F-Resin Convair 880 at 25.7MM. It becomes noticeable sitting next to the other 116 1/144 kits in the collection so far. Particularly the engines and sitting height.


      So I am hoping that the EE Kit scales out to 1/144.

      I really liked the way the 990 turned out. It is an American Airlines Delivery Livery. I just sit it elsewhere outside of the 1/144 collection.

      Thanks,

      Mark

      Hi Mark,

      The dimensions you are referring to are the overall dimensions and include the empennage. The actual fuselage is shorter.
