      This is very interesting. Itíll be wonderful if they get the contours and angles correct. Other than Authentic Airliners, no one one has captured the correct DC-8 nose shape &񗸸️😉

      You might just as well put the money in the fireplace and burn it.

      Or... hear me out: you guys could wait for the kit being released before verbally obliterating it.

      I'll buy one as an "investement". With the occasion, I'll finally finish the Conway engines and scale up all the 3D design done for the Minicraft DC-8 kit.
      Not sure if the Mach 2 kit will be good or not, at least the Bra.Z Models resin kits are based on original production line Douglas blueprints. ....nose included!!!
      Cheers,
