      Cool!

      You appear to be plugged in to EE. Any word on actual releases between now and Christmas? I am looking forward to the Convair 880 that they announced some time ago.

      Thanks for the update. Looking forward to a DC-8-33 as well.

      Greetings!

      It will be nice to have another DC-8 offering, especially one with JT4A engines on it. None of the previous DC-8 kits I've seen have ever gotten the engine pods and pylons correct for a JT4A (or Conway) powered airplane, but it will be interesting to see what their treatment of the ejectors will look like, and whether or not it can be done with them extended or retracted. Of course, this assumes that it will be a -30 series airplane, which could also be built in appropriate markings as a series -21. The typical view of a DC-8-21,-31,-32,-33,-41,-42 or -43 on the ground was with the ejectors extended, Pan American being the only airline I knew of who usually retracted them after landing and extended them just before takeoff.

      Anyway, it's great news that another DC-8 kit is in the mill! Meanwhile, I'm salivating over the prospective Convair 880.....

      Regards,
      Jeff Jarvis

      They've already indicated the release of both a TWA and QANTAS SP on the PAS forum.
