Default Lockheed L-1011 TriStar Royal Jordanian, JC-Wings

After seeing the pictures taken by Agent X20, I knew I had to have it, too!
Fabulous livery, fabulous model.





Cheers and good night!

Cool Re: Lockheed L-1011 TriStar Royal Jordanian, JC-Wings

Lovely photos of a lovely model.

I'm still hemming-and-hawing over this one. I still can't get it to fit in any of my groups, yet it just looks so rich and opulent.

Be daring and innovative and just get it, criteria or not. Some seem to be very rigid when it comes to collecting criteria although its a good idea because otherwise one ends up broke most of the time.

I like the sound of that, Moin. After Christmas then.

This is going to be one of those releases where everybody will really kick themselves if they don't buy it whilst they have the chance. Whether it fits your theme or not doesn't matter with this one, as it's just such a stunning bird. And just think of the stress in nine month's time when the only place you'll get it is from a HK seller for telephone number money.

Didn't suit my collection, too - or so I thought.

More pictures coming today...resistance is futile!

A little bit of psychological persuasion:

Look at the picture....



You want it. Trust in me...

Very nice gentle bend on the fuselage with the lens. Almost looks like if one were photographing the real thing. Impressive AND gorgeous!

Royal Jordanian is my favourite livery. I am so glad I got this model. Makes up for the disappointment of the Phoenix A330s with the completely incorrect charcoal colour.

JC Wings have done a superb job on this model. Excellent build quality and finish.

I like the 2nd picture which recalls the good old days in Kai Tak.

Has this model made it to US retailers yet? Mine's still on Pre-order.

I have this model and I have to say it is absolutely superb. One of those rare beasts that is practically perfect. It's now my fave bird - and I can't imagine I'd ever want to part with it. So... all you doubters, get it whilst you can!
