      After receiving numerous requests, I have decided to release all six new DC-10 decals -- designed for use with the Revell DC-10 kit. Ordering info is available on the website: www.vintageflyerdecals.com .

      So now, two versions of the DC-10 sheets are available!

      For customers that have already ordered the original sheets and wish to change to the Revell specific decals, just drop me a note and I'll update your order to reflect the new version.

      As always, questions are always welcome.

      Thanks,

      Mike

      Pardon the stupid question, but what is the difference between the two kits? And is the Revell kit available anywhere?

      The Authentic Airliners DC-10 kit is cast in resin and is a solid model. The Revell kit is injection-molded. Though the manufacturers' try, no two kits of the same aircraft model are identical. The only chance you are really going to have in finding the Revell kit is at a swap meet or through eBay or another online auction site. I personally think the Airfix DC-10 kit would be a better choice because it appears to be more common.

      Airfix has a better cockpit and engines. Revell has better wings and fuselage fairings. For my next build I plan to combine both kits to get a better result.

      The difference between the Revell and the AA kit?
      Well, I am not allowed to tell in detail but one of these looks like a DC10 while the other simply does not.
