      Found this the other day checking the status of a recent order.

      Not many decals out there for an MD-87. Maybe some of our esteemed vendors can solve that problem!

      Hi Mark.
      You will find a few Scandinavian subjects on my website.

      Happy modelling,

      Holy buckets! They are already sold out.

      Should have kept that one to myself I guess.

      Thanks for the heads up Ruben.

      Hi Mark,

      I just got a few kits with the last delivery from the casting company and should get more soon.

      I'd imagine many, if not most MD-82/83/88 decals fit the 87 as well, seeing as the length and stabilizer are the primary differences. You'd need to be careful with ones where the windows are baked into the rest of the lettering and symbols, or where there may be a length-related difference, like perhaps the old Iberia scheme.

      Yes,

      That does work. I converted a Minicraft MD-80 into an -87 and kit bashed some Reno Air decals to fit. It would be nice to have some that were made for it though.
