Wanted: wind tunnel model for MD 87 / DC9

Wanted: wind tunnel model for MD 87 / DC9

Wanted: wind tunnel model for MD 87 / DC9

(OP)
Can anyone tell me where to find a reasonably priced model of a DC9 (MD87)?  I need something with a wingspan of 4 to 8 feet.  I prefer a wind tunnel model, but I can use a reasonably accurate display model.

RE: Wanted: wind tunnel model for MD 87 / DC9

Try looking around travel agents, sometimes these types of models are on display in the front office.

berkshire,

Thank you for the suggestion.  I will try some travel agents.

RE: Wanted: wind tunnel model for MD 87 / DC9

Kind of hard to imagine a 4-ft wingspan model in a travel agent's office, though.

What's the intent of this model?  You can probably find 3D CAD or CGI models for various planes and have a machine shop make one for you, depending on how much you want to spend:

IRstuff: the purpose of the model is to do preliminary aerodynamic modeling.   At this point in the project I do not have a budget big enough to fabricate an elaborate aerodynamic model.  If preliminary wind tunnel work is encouraging, then we will have budget for more exacting models.

RE: Wanted: wind tunnel model for MD 87 / DC9

Much less enough structural integrity to survive long in wind tunnel tests.
