      Hi all,

      Though I was searching the net I couldn't`t find reliable data for the following:
      -Fuselage diameter of HS 121 Trident and fuselage length of the 2E variant, including the #2 engine exhaust.
      -Fuselage length and diameter of CV990,

      I will be very happy for any help!

      According to "Aircraft Data" (FAA Advisory Circular 150/5325-5C, dated 29 June 1987), the length of the CV 990 from tip of radome to aft outboard tip of horizontal stabilizer when seen in profile is 139 ft 9 in (42.60 m). From vertical centerline of nose gear to vertical centerline of main gear is 57 ft 3 in (17.45 m). From tip of radome to centerline of main gear is 68 ft 11 in (21.01 m). Those are all the relevant dimensions I can find.

      However, I have some drawings which I will be happy to email you.

      Kurt, are you planning to release kits of the CV-990 and Trident!! Any chance we could see a 1/72 990?

      Thank you very much for your drawings Mike. They look very helpful.
      None of these kits are planned for scale 1/72.
