Default IF200 EASTERN AIRLINES L-1011...Pics!

...a "bunch" of them as requested by another member here
I hope these will do until you receive your own model and gaze at it !!!

Its a nice piece, IF200 did a lovely job, I missed the first release ( was buying Flying Boats back then ! ) so I HAD to grab this one.

I also like the box art, I know most of you here couldnt care less for the box/sleeve, but since I have no cabinet, it looks good when piled up among other models
Hope you like the photos,
yours,
rui



Very 70's

Love the sunset shot I gotta say, the wing detail on this bird is pretty awesome, really good, much better than the DC-10 for example.

Those are fantastic shots for an amateur photographer, they take the hobby to another level and generate inspiration for us collectors. Well done Rui.

Great shots! I've been satisfied (up to now) with my white bodied Eastern L-1011. Now I'm reconsidering it. IF200 has really stepped up their box art too. I don't really have room to display another Tri-Star, but...

Thanks for posting, Rui!

Amazing release by Inflight! One of my long awaited all time dream models. Love the clean smooth super polished look! Cannot wait for mine to arrive. Would love to see an EA A300 release sometime not just to add another EA bird to my collection but because of the historical connotation being Eastern airlines the first US operator to launch the type into service in the United States. Magnificent photo shoot! Even the box looks great and tells more not just about the plane but the airline's legacy.

Took a while to find mine, just be patient, keep looking. The Bicentennial version pops up more frequently, but the regular one can be found.

Great pictures Rui and a beautiful model you have there. I'll stick with my previously released silver paint Eastern L1011 though.

Looks great, and beautiful photos Rui. Is this a re-work of the old L-1011 mould, as the DC-10 before? Does anybody recognize what the differences are, beyond the polished fuselage?

Thank you ALL for your nice comments, again im not the one that makes the model look good, they did it at INFLIGHT200, I just photographed it!
I need to get me one air bridge and a decent 1:200 airport terminal. The one showing in the back is my old 1:400 attempt!

Thanks to Rui, this model looks much better than the real thing!

however... as much as i like polished models, i would rather have the original white Whisperliner livery. but iirc they never looked as good or maintained (polished) like AAs bare metal aircraft. i also dislike the grey paint on the tail/rudder and although it "is" correct, there were a few EAL 1011s operating prior to applying the grey that would have made this model stand out so much better.

ps: i still don't care for the contour of the #2 intake on the IF1011. too sharp of an angle...

I don't know if it's just the lighting, but the stripes, especially the darker blue, look too dark. And was the tail white or gray? I see pictures of this livery, and the tail seems to be mostly white in those shots.

IMHO, all EA L-1011's in bare metal, had silvery-grey rudders. It just looks more grey, or more silver, in different pics. In the first and third one posted, the rudder color clearly doesn't match the intake or fuselage---it's just catching the light more than normal, and looks more silvery. But it's not bare metal---the color is warmer than the fuselage, which is consistent with the silver-grey paint. IF200 used simple grey paint, not silver-grey, so it looks a bit off. But none should have "polished bare metal" rudders etc.

They get points for making the attempt, but got the color pretty wrong. Simple silver paint may have been the best option, to provide "subtle" contrast with the actual bare metal.

Eastern applied grey paint to the rudder on L1011s in the 80s. But, IF should've used a silver not grey paint for this specific aircraft. All of the photos Ive seen of N324EA show a silver rudder.

I just managed to get this one too , not in my small collection criteria but I actually flew on this bird so decided to go for it.

If you are looking for one in the UK I believe you can still get one on pre-order from airspotters as the UK supplier is still waiting to receive the shipment by sea.

Default Re: IF200 EASTERN AIRLINES L-1011...Pics!

Nice model indeed but I highly recommend all to check the wings before pay your money, the one I got was "used", an old wing reprinted...My camera is not good enough to show this but you may see "VR-HOE" from my photo.
I am afraid that I will not be alone with such issue when I read the other thread:

Wow, can't believe it...

Any other collector who received this Eastern L1011, has had the same issue?
Is this something that can be refered to InFlight and get refunded or a new model in pristine conditions?

Wondering if this is happening with this model only or is something that they've been doing for a while...

As I said in another thread ( we're repeating ourselves here arent we?!) the best thing to do is to send the model(s) back for a full refund or a replacement, any good supplier will do this for its customers. In the end I dont think there'll be many of these left anyway with so many people still after them...!!!
As I said, my two models are flawless.

Nice-looking, indeed! BUT the reg is all wrong. Air Canada's C-FTNJ was never shared with Eastern Airlines...

Really, they should have picked a different registry number. If they're going to do "pure light grey" rudder paint, then they should have done one that was actually painted like that.

I see it way too often---it's like a company finalizes the paint details, THEN picks a registry number! And that doesn't work.

Hello guys,

If you zoom in the photo and see the front portion connecting the
engine no 2 and fuselage, I think there's probably polish defects on the L1011....

Sure disappointed to see the polish quality sucks on new L1011 mould especially from IF200.......I hope that's photo issue but seems unlikely.....

There's another link one of the DAC member quoted the batch of Eastern L1011 comes with defects....not sure if one of the defects is this defect that I see....

Maybe Rui can clarify if that's defects.....
