• Historic Airline Group Annual Contest Underway

    It's time once again for the Annual Historic Airline Group Contest Giveaway! This year we have as a Grand Prize this rare 1:144 scale Revell model 727-100! This plastic model represents the dawn of the jet age for domestic travel within the US and Europe. Designed for short haul and smaller airports, it first flew in 1964 with Eastern Airlines. 572 727-100 series were eventually built. The model comes with decals for Germania, but online you can find decals for many different airlines for the 727-100. Grand prize includes free shipping.

    THE CONTEST: Details can be found on the About Us tab. We will fly from San Diego to El Paso, El Paso to Kansas City, Kansas City to Chicago and Chicago to Washington DC using four aircraft: A DC-6B, DC-7B, Connie L-049 and the 727-100. Total block time for all four legs will be the the prize number. The pilot who flies all four legs and records total block time closest to the prize number will win the grand prize. Here's the twist: You do not know which aircraft flew which leg! Submit your total block figure via email to HAG before midnight GMT May 31. Winner also gets his picture posted on the web site to become an international celebrity! Participants must be HAG members. Gentlemen, start your engines!

      You can order it from here: http://www.hobby1.com/
      They also carry the 1/72 DC9-10 as well. Could probably order a 1/72 727 for you. They're in St Charles MO
