DC-9-30, Northwest Airlines
Limited edition. I suppose it's hard to get excited about a 3 1/2" model in Northwest livery, but I bought this one for the red tail and because it is a DC-9. The red tail? Well, who knows why? However, it's a kick owning these smaller airliners in this scale. The DC-9, B727, and B737 are fun just because of the fine detailing the manufacturers put in such a small package. I'm even starting to warm to the AeroClassics Connies; but more about that later.

The model is well engineered, and the paint job is very good. There is one flaw in the paint, and that is in the silver leading edge of the fin, on the starboard side.

Apparently this little guy wasn't a big seller. It was manufactured in 2003, and I bought it at a discount in late 2005.

GJ item no. GJNWA480
Production run of model 2,000 units
