When Minicraft brought this kit out modellers were delighted. At last an airliner kit was being produced to the same standard of detail to which our military modelling cousins had long been accustomed. The fit was superb, the details crisp and the execution second to none. At last airliner nirvana was at hand.

Hey there folks. Thought I would post a couple photos of a completed model built from the above kit. The only difference is the one I bought was in USAir markings. I have said this before, but be warned again, the USAir version of this model kit needs decal preservative applied to the decal sheet before use. Three decal sheets later, I managed to cobble together a finished kit.

The kit is very nice however, I recommend it to anyone who wants an MD-80 series in their collection. Hope this helps someone decide if they want to build one or not. Russell
