Aviation 200 Braniff International DC-8-62CF N1807 Orange (cn 45904/309) Review by James F
This aircraft flew in various Braniff colors as well as for Hawaiian Airlines. Built in 1997 this aircraft delivered Nov. 13, 1967 to Braniff and also flew in their Panagra Green livery, Orange livery and Burgundy livery. It went through several leases thereafter and was stored in 2002. Our model is in the orange livery with the yellowish orange under carriage. Here is a picture of the actual aircraft from Airliners.net: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Braniff-International-Airways/McDonnell-Douglas-DC-8-62CF/0440174/L/&sid=312660244efad589440ad0de4fedcbec and another one with the doors open: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Braniff-International-Airways/McDonnell-Douglas-DC-8-62CF/0394036/L/&sid=312660244efad589440ad0de4fedcbec
The model is a reasonable replica but the seam were the wings meet the fuselage is large. The forward antenna also seems a little big. and in the pictures it is orange, not white as it is on the model.
The nose seems correct and the windows for the cockpit are correct with wind shield wipers visible. The passenger doors and windows are correct and look sharp against the orange backdrop. The colors on the model match well with the images.
The landing gear are properly scaled. The nose gear covers have the fleet number on them. Landing lights and warning lights are part of the model and add further detail. (Posted on 9/12/2011)
