Model History: This Model has a Great History! It was given
to Terry Waddington who was then working for Douglas and in charge
of building a full scale mock-up of the Proposed USAF AWACS DC-8-62
back in 1969. Terry told me that it was made by the Douglas Model
Shop which was still in existance then. I Acquired it from Terry
on March 13, 2003. Terry is the Author of "Douglas DC-8 –
Great Airliners Volume Two" which is the Finest Book on the
DC-8 that I have Ever Found. In additon to other fine books, Terry
has also authored the "Great Airliners – DC-9 & DC-10"
books which are equally comprehensive. Many
Thanks To You Terry For Selling Me This Great Model as well as
a lot of other Wonderful Douglas DC-8 Memorabilia.
It All
Has Come To A Good Home!
