February 25, 2004 I sold this Beautiful United DC-8 Cutaway Model to Fellow
Collector Phil Montejano. I hadn’t thought about selling this Historic Model
until Phil approached me at the San Francisco Airliner’s Show last October.
I really didn’t want to part with such a rare model but I was also running
out of space in my apartment to display my ever growing DC-8 Collection. Thus,
after a great deal of thought, I decided to sell it to Phil and we came to
an agreement last fall which was fulfilled last month. Though my greatest
passion lies with the Douglas Factory Polished Aluminum Models, I do hope
to someday add another DC-8 Cutaway Model back to my collection but at a smaller
scale of 1/50 which is more manageable with my space limitations. It was a
difficult decsion to make but I am Very Happy that this Wonderful Cutaway
is going to an Excellent Home at Phil’s where there is Plenty of Space to
Display & Fully Appreciate It.
my only remaining Cutaway Model is a 1/100 Scale Cargosur DC-8 Freighter,
I am going to move this model to my ‘Fiberglass/Resin/Plastic Models’ Page
in the near future and temporarily, hopefully just temporarily,
discontinue this ‘Cutaway Models Page’ until I am fortunate enough to acquire
Phil & Best Wishes With Your Wonderful United DC-8 Cutaway Model!
