      You're making new kits faster than I can build them! Looks absolutely Stunning! Keep up the amazing work, Kurt. I'll be ordering one (or more!)

      Ah yes the vulnerable DC8! Flew to basic training on this as the good old United stars and bars scheme. Fond memories. The flight that is, not basic training! Beautiful Kurt, as always. I'm in!

      Models, try 'em..........

      And that is not all.
      Two other kits are sitting on the workbench expecting their finish soon.
      All shall be available by mid/late June.

      Wow!
      Just cancelled my ongoing conversion project transforming Revellīs ancient DC-8 into a srs.-50 using their (rather outsized) DC-8-61 engines.
      Farewell compromises...... Welcome Kurtīs brilliant offering! 👍

      At least one for me. Finally a way to avoid major surgery on Minicraft. Will you be selling the engines separately? I would like to use them on my MC conversion.

      Yes, I`ll be offering the engines separately, though the fitting will not be perfect, because the MC leading edge of the wings is too thick.
