Caribbean Airways DC-10 (1/500)

Caribbean Airways (until 1976 : International Caribbean Airways) was founded end of 1970 on Barbados as joint venture between Sir Freddie Laker and two local businessmen in cooperation with the local government.
In December 1970 operations were started with flights from Barbados to Luxemburg using a B707 from Laker Airways. London-Gatwick followed shortly in 1971. In 1973 the two businessmen sold their stakes to the government of Barbados, and International Caribbean Airways became the flag carrier of Barbados.
Besides the regular twice-weekly flights to LUX and LGW there were numerous charter flights which took place in the 70s from Barbados to Montréal and Berlin. After some years of operations, the B707s were replaced by DC-10s still from Laker.
In 1987, Caribbean Airways stopped own flight operations as the government decided to stop to cover the losses of the operations.

The base model of this custom is the recently released Laker DC-10 "Skytrain" from Herpa.

EDIT on looking at the picture I just realised that I forgot to change the front gear door registrations
