Delta Airlines 707P - P for Pusher

Recommended Posts

You know what they say. Some days you get lucky...

...and other days you get a Minicraft 707.

The nose was a rhinoplasty nightmare.

I wanted to do something a little different, so I came up with the idea of making pusher engines from drinking straws:

While it's no prize-winner, I learned a lot about the peculiarities of the 1/144 Minicraft 707 which should help me with the other five of these I have in the kit stash.

Decals are the 1/144 Minicraft Delta DC-8 set by Cartograph which will curl if you're not careful. The props are white metal courtesy of AeroClub and the engine nacelles were made from drinking straws, drop-tank tips and wheels.

I always imagine that something awful happened and Boeing couldn't get working jet engines and had to do something to sell all those 707 orders. I call this the 707P - P for Pusher.

Yes I know, the maintenance crew at this airport is slacking badly, especially on runway Bri2k. I should make a 1/144 scale guy with a lawnmower...
