Lockheed L-1011 TriStar All Nippon Airways Hasegawa 1/200

Recommended Posts

My recently finished builds are mostly Hasegawa 1/200 kits,and these are the first that came off the assembly line.

This was one of Hasegawa's 2in1 kit releases and offers to build 3 ANA versions to be build,although you have to decide which one of the Triton Blue version you want to build.

The bare metal underbelly or the all grey underbelly, like the TriStar was before retirement in 1995.

 

I opted for the very first TriStar in the "Mohican" scheme as they were delivered in 1973 and the "Triton Blue" last flight livery with the all grey underbelly

 

As for all Hasegawa LL200 airliner kits,the build is straight forward with no issues at all.

I really love those kits as they offer easy,fun builds with quick results.

 

The only thing I changed were the engine exhausts on the Triton version,which had to be shortened to match the later version engines.

The Mohican version was left with the longer exhausts as offered in the kit.

 

Painted entirely by airbrush using Revell and Testors enamels and coted with my Media Range Color protection spray.

The windows were filled with Krystal Klear.The cockpit windows were painted inside black as the empty cockpit looked a bit off through the clear cockpit windows.

 

Thanks for looking....

Lovely builds....I see a lot of ANA aircraft, but hadn't realised what their old livery looked like.....the new one is a big improvement!

Many Chinese airlines still retain those "old fashioned" liveries, and they just look wrong! Its always interesting to look back at what was cool in the past!

Cheers

Wonderful tiny tristars! I remember a flight to Sri Lanka in a LTU one. I would love to build a kit in 1:72 in classic PSA livery with smile face on the front and the most fashionable attendants of all time. This was no old fashion in contrast to the chinese, that was pure science fiction in the 7ties....

Very smart, I've always liked the aircraft, had a few adventures in my younger days via RAF Tri Stars.

Very nice builds, and you can't go wrong with a Tristar. It is great idea to do delivery & retirement schemes. It's given me some ideas!

 

Cheers

Alex you really have been busy! You need to let the rest of us catch up!!

I agree with Tania, my favourite is the later livery but they're both great models though!

Cheers,

Ian
