Model History: I acquired the blank from a private collector in May, 2003. It was in Delta Air Lines livery but in very poor shape. In addition to the decals and paint being in bad condition, both horizontal stabilizers were bent downward. My friend Jim Powroznik (James Powroznik Custom Models), Clovis, CA. straightened out the stabilizers for me. I then had it professionally polished and returned it to Jim to finish in Hughes Airwest Colors. He did a terrific job and I Picked It Up on August 9, 2003. Once Again Jim Thanks For The Outstanding Work! During my younger years West Coast / Air West / Hughes Airwest was the only carrier to serve the small town whe
