      Great news! The best for filling a long time void upon traditional injection models in 1/144 scale. This kit (and any future engine conversion releases) will be a white canvas for many airline liveries.

      Are there any visual differences between CV340 and 440?

      Linjeflyg(SE) CV440 Metropolitan and AeBal B717 would be very nice!

      440 has rectangle exhaust,340 round pipes like a 240.The 440 also has a smaller engine cowling opening.Some 340s that were converted to 440s did not have the smaller opening but did have the later exhaust opening.The first five that North Central bought from Continental were like this.

      As an airman, I had the opportunity to fly such a magnificent aircraft. Was told once it was the nearest to become the perfect DC-3 replacement (which I had never got the chance to fly). Still keep my manuals & notes; so can recall the different modifications on airframe & powerplants if anyone slips my mind
