Default midwest express/airlines decals

I'm looking for some Midwest airlines/express MD80 decals, I cant seem to find any, hoping someone here could help steer me in the right direction.

My dad worked there for 4 years, I'm looking to build him a MD 80.

Give Airline Hobby Supplies a shot- it seems what you're looking for is in stock... He's got a very wide selection, but be prepared for the potential for somewhat slow service.

Good luck!

Appreciate it! Now to find a 144 MD 80 kit!

No problem, at all!

Here's your MD-80 kit source:
http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/min14633.htm

Really, the two and only gotchas on the MC kit is the air intake at the base of the fin- look at some pics ( http://www.airliners.net/photo/Midwe...969acf47ade1ea ), build the base area up with a touch of Miliput, drill the hole out and sand until you get the right look. Also, you'll need to add 2-3oz of weight either in front of or just behind the nose gear well- if you don't, you'll have a surefire tailsitter! Other than that, the kit is an absolute gem and goes together like butter!

Have fun with the build!
