Dc-8 Awacs Pacmin Pacific Miniatures Vintage Factory Topping Type Concept Model:
This was the earliest concept proposed by McDonnell Douglas for the USAF AWACS program, which eventually was won by Boeing. As the design evolved, MacDac successively moved the radome forward to minimize interference with tail control surfaces. Pacific Miniatures made this injection-molded model sometime around 1965. Fuselage length is 11.5 inches and wingspan is 11 inches. Like all PacMin models, the build quality is first class. It's in superb shape--no warping, dings, or decal chips. Two engines were reattached but the repairs were well done. The wood & metal stand has an intact felt bottom. The raised metal nameplate reads simply "McDonnell Douglas AWACS" and bears the modern MacDac logo. Insurance is included. And please check out my other sales of unusual desktop models this week.
