Smile Douglas DC-9 1/100 (Draco)

Time to show a new model: Douglas DC-9-10, a classic of commercial aviation. Designed in the 1960s to meet a growing regional aviation demand in the United States, the then Douglas Aircraft product was a twin-engine derivative of the DC-8 with a design influenced by the Sud Aviation Caravelle, but improved, so much so that the DC- 9 gives rise to a large family of commercial jets including the MD-80/90 and the Boeing 717. Its design features with engines in the tail cone and the T-shape tail influenced a number of other later designs such as the EMBRAER aircraft and Fokker. Despite having been a commercial success and operated by a number of airlines, the DC-9 was practically not used here in Brazil (with the exception of the extinct Cruzeiro company that used the MD-80). My 1/100 scale short fuselage model represents one of the DC-9s in the fleet of Laser a domestic Venezuelan company that still operates the venerable jet on regional lines.

Smile Aspects of build.

Well friends here I present some aspects of the construction of the DC-9 that was designed by Draco. My version was one of the early beta design versions mostly with later nose modifications that were incorporated into the final model that is for sale at Ecardmodels.
I consider this model of high added value, because it was entirely hand-drawn like the other Draco products, it doesn't have any construction problem with very precise parts. It is a highly recommended model.

































See you later.

I thank you for the superb project and I look forward to the other versions. I take this opportunity to say that you like commercial aircraft should not miss out on this model.

I consider the work of Draco and Yankekillo simply amazing because it is handmade, unfortunately with this second designer I fell out on a social network, but I can't help but admire their excellent creations since I've already acquired some. The DC-9 revived me by summarizing the challenge of building the Supermarine Stranraer and later the He-115.
