DC-10 model in delivery livery of first three PIA DC-10s looks very rare collectible item.

Probably McDonnell Douglas gifted these models to PIA officials at the time of delivery of first DC-10 to PIA? Or PIA placed order for these models for display at airline's offices?

Abbas Bhai, I have no clue about the origins of the DC-10 but I agree with your statement that probably it was MDC that could have had built a few models for PIA executives at that time. I have never seen DC-10 models in any PIA office/travel agency as such. Interestingly the captain (rtd) has commanded DC-10s.

This is the first in a list of antique PIA models.........I am hoping to grab a few more.......including a huge cutaway PIA (type still unknown) 8-[ Please pray that I get my hands to it during Eid!
