      Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a couple of photos of my newly completed Hawaiian DC-10. I've been chasing after this project for years and years. I originally completed this kit (Doyousha/Entex) as N101AA the prototype DC-10 in it's American Airlines livery, but a big scale Hawaiian Air -10 has always been what I've really wanted. Now thanks to DRAW's new Hawaiian DC-10 sheet, I'm able to say I've got one I was even able to name her N122AA 'Kauai' which was really cool because I've got a lot of special memories of time spent on that island.

      I wanted to depict an airplane that was in the twilight of a hard working career, so it's a little dirtier and well-worn in spots.

      Without further adieu... I hope you enjoy!









      And finally one with a little filtering that's reminiscent of the 90's

      Good job! Looks good. Reminds me of my flights on Hawaiian DC-10s from SFO-HNL and back in early 2000.

      I love it! It looks great! The panel detail on the wings is very sharp!
      I recently built a Doyusha 1/100 DC-10 myself and I cat wait to build another big scale airliner!
