      If the 880 shared the scheme with the 727, then I'd say yes....

      You should inquire with Brad Shinn since he has already built a NE Convair 990.

      One other note- the Yellowbird 880's pylons were sometimes painted yellow, and other times bare metal. I've seen photos of the withdrawn 880's having bare metal pylons. Best of luck with the build.

      Never put off for tomorrow what can dry overnight
