Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation, Revell 1/144


Recommended Posts

Inspired by the model 1/144 Cathay Pacific Airbus A350-900 Revell (built by Columbia20713) I also show a weathered "airliner". It is the Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation (Revell 1/144), to me the most beautiful airliner ever. I painted the metal finish with model master (testors) "steel", "aluminum" and "chrome". Decals of the '' Fuerza Aérea de Chile '' are my own production.

 

 

This original photograph of a Connie parked somewhere on an airfield, apparently forgotten, had caused me to make my model worn out. But I did not want to make my model look broken, just worn and dirty.

That's the result

Outstanding build and finish on a (relatively) small scale!

I think that the photo at the top would be great to replicate in 1/72.

Brilliant work!

I agree with sentiments that the Connie is a most beautiful airliner.

You've done a fine job, and the display base really sets it off nicely.

:clap:
