Lockheed Constellation L-649,749 window diameter - help please!

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a copy of the Heller short fuselage Constellation that I propose building, and the prevailing wisdom is that the window openings are too large in diameter. Does anyone know what the actual full-size measure is for the circular windows? The kit ones are 18 scale inches, IIRC. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Tony.

I found out an old book that is a translation of a french one.
Jean Bouillier says that he personally mesured the diameter of the pax windows in the Museum of Le Bourget (F-BAZR).
Real thing diameter 365mm; 1/72 scale 5,1mm. link
Hope this helps.
Best regards.
