One of the biggest models in my collection is this 1:100 scale Doyusha DC-8-62 seen here in it's area of display on my dresser...

The same model atop the TV in my computer room. An elaborate kit, the airstairs alone came in six pieces. Thanks to two tones of plastic I can leave this unpainted.

These big Doyusha planes are excellent models, and can still be purchased new.

THIS Doyusha DC8-62 is certainly one of the all time classic Douglas
jet aircraft. This airplane is beautiful. I also have the Allyn chrome Douglas DC8 prototype.
although I do not have the chrome stand. Regards, Richard
