Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+++

$89   

Dated 1961. Rare larger-scale Aurora kit molded in white and clear with recessed control surface and door lines. Features clear cockpit windshield, full landing gear and a large clear 'Triangle World' stand. The kit has not been started. NOTE: missing nose gear door. This part is easily made from plastic stock, or is not needed if the kit if built in the 'gear up' configuration. Inventoried with all other parts and excellent decals and instructions. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.
