A few minutes more today, starting with the OY-KIA.
The wings, including that unusual positioning of the register (painted over the flaps!) are finished. I'm starting to paint the fuselage, too.
So, bit a bit, another for the collection!

Another ten minutes of relax, and the engines are almost ready.

Two interesting points about them. First, the OY-KIA had the reverses angled 17 . You can see it easily in the side picture.
This was a very liked modification in the life of the DC-9 series, because it improved the handling of the plane while braking. BUT it was a "field modification", done by the groud crew and by just screwing the parts in another position. You can see the picture from the rear of the unidentified plane that it was possible to have mixed positions in the same fuselage.
It was so easy to do (and reverse) that years later, when OY-KIA became YV-13C, the reverses were again perfectly horizontal.

And the second interesting point: the picture with Aeropostal colors shows the registration TI-AZS. It was leased to the company Tica, based in Costa Rica, but it didn't worked out. I'm not going to depict this last registration, because the changes are minimal compared with YV-13C.

Long time that I haven't touched my Dc-9s.

Just for fun, I followed the life of a single DC-9-34CF and found that it belonged to Aviaco (2 liveries), Iberia and Austral (2 liveries). So, I have now nine Dc-9-30 liveries to do.

I expect to finish Iberia and Austral first. Then, if my Saro London still isn't ready to release, the rest.

Just finished my first Dc-9-21, SAS OY-KIA.
As I said, and just because, my first four Dc-9-21 are going to be the same plane, the prototype of the Dc-9-20.
The only thing that's going to change is the owners of the plane: Douglas, 2 incarnations in SAS, and one with Aeropostal.

BTW, the font of Scandinavian is not a normal font, so I had to upload flighter.ttf to be able to finish this plane. So, next week you'll be able to download Guttom Viking!

My first Dc-9-21 model, OY-KIA, has been publised today in ecardmodels.

My future plans about the Dc-9/Ms is to rework the wings roots to allow the Dc-9-33CF and Dc-9-51 models. Another plan is to start the MD-80 design, maybe next month.

Working in another proyects doesn't mean that I have forgotten my plans of designing the MD-80s.
Here is an interesting picture that shows what happens when you want to open the rear stair and you pull the emergency exit instead.

My present and future plans about the Dc-9 series:

First, the Dc-9-31 from Grand Airways is finished, will be uploaded to ecardmodels today.

Second, my Dc-9-14 from Finnair and Dc-9-31 from TAA are in process.

There are a lot of Dc-9 selected, but first I need to rework the wings roots to allow the Dc-9-33CF and Dc-9-51 models, because these models have a change in the wing root, they have not two wing roots but just a bigger one that covers all the belly.

Another plan is to start the MD-80 design. It will include a rework of the cockpit area. The actual one was designed to include a floor and door cockpit. But, as nobody have done the cockpit upgrade (that I know), I'll remove that parts, simplifying the build.

And last, there is going to be a combo of the tree tricolor planes from Aserca. Each of them has the engines and the tail section in a different color secuence.
