Gorgeous model. I'm very fond of mine (original release, white top).

Whenever I think of the L-1011, I think "Eastern", to me the two (airplane and airline) are inextricably linked. Their livery just fits that airplane perfectly.

The "Whisperliner".

The horizontal stabilizers are supposed to be 100% painted white except for the leading edge.

Very nice looking model. Livery and detail printing looks clean and sharp. Looks like a good job Inflight.

Just one gripe about the mold. I was going to get this model, but the Inflight L-1011 nose shape and cockpit window printing looks a little off to me. The Gemini L-1011-500 nose shape looks a little better, but I don't think anyone has nailed the L-1011 nose shape and cockpit windows exactly yet.

The L-1011 has a blunt nose and prominent radome modeled after the shape of the bottlenose dolphin. For me, the nose shape is the defining thing about the L-1011. That being said, I do have the Gemini Delta Widget L-1011 which I really like on the same mold.

So you painted the horizontal stabs white after you received it? I have the original release and this one on pre-order. But I'm considering canceling the pre-order. This does look nice, though.

Oh, okay.

I'll most likely cancel the pre-order on this one. It looks as though the Caribbean Blue is off as with other IF200 Eastern releases. Should have a tad more green in it. Gemini's colors are a bit better, but I think their reproduction of Caribbean Blue is a bit too turquoise. It's hard to tell when looking at photos of actual aircraft.

Photo's are never a good reference , hell even our eyes are different so our perception of certain colours could be way off aswell .

My photo's sure don't do this bird justice (Ipad camera)

My advice on't cancel your pre order..she is worth it and in real life these aircraft could really bleech out in the sun too.

Yes, especially with photos of actual aircraft. Various weather conditions, camera exposures, type of film, etc. can make colors look different than they really are.

Do you know this to be fact? Because every single photo I have ever seen of white-top EA L1011s in service has indicated solid white stabilizers. If you have certain knowledge of this I would be willing to take your word for it.

No i was not sure actually and looking at a palmdale factory picture.
Here was a ship right before delivery and it looks like the stab was white like you said.

Mmmmmm seems a rather stupid mistake to make from Inflight.

Actually i decided that i will bring it back to the shop.
I think this is a rather big mistake to make.

Yep i just decided to bring her back tomorrow. She is a nice ship but this is not something to be overlooked IMHO it is too big a detail to leave out.

Thanks for pointing it out Pan Am 707.

It is time to be more critical

None of Inflight models have the correct light blue (Caribbean) or dark blue (ionosphere). The only 1:200 diecast model that is almost spot on is the Gemini 200 757. The other thing about these new IF Eastern L1011 releases (white and bare metal) is the Eastern font is too thin and the falcon is too wide. The thickness of the font and the falcon should match. But, other than that, they're beautiful models.

Here's the thing and it's very simple: All EA aircraft in the white top scheme since its inception in 1964 had white stabilizers. DC-8s, B720s, L1011s, etc.

Just before the paint was scraped off of the fleet in the late 70s, there were some 727s and DC9s floating around here and there with bare metal corroguar stabs. And the A300 did not arrive until 1978, with bare metal stabs. Otherwise, stabs were always white, and particularly on the L1011.

There are photos of these planes everywhere. There is no reason for a manufacturer to make this kind of mistake. None.

Here is N329EA delivered in 1975. It's clear that the stab is white -- same color as the fuselage. And they were completely white -- no visible corroguard or bare metal trailing edge. Only the leading edges were left bare.

Hey Rc!

Unfortunatly yes
A big mistake by Inflight IMHO but she is to nice to be discarded just for that.
Now i am a nitpicker believe me , but the rest of the model is really nice.
Thats why she stays , maybe ill get some white decal paper to cover it up.

I have this model coming my way too, missed it when it came out a few years ago....I will try something here, on an old model first, see if it works, and will share with you later.
Box looks nice, its a cutaway right??
Oh well.....:-(

Baerke, if you go collecting EASTERN, then THIS is THE model, as said before, both livery and aircraft type looks superb! I keep wishing the brand with the A300 Mould decides to do something bould, and surprise the collectors with an Eastern A300 too!

Yep the release rate of new models is outrunning my income rate .
Now i need to really select what i like. The L1011 is a side step for me.
I normally try to focus on DC jets only Nine's Ten's but i simply cant let these beauties go by.

A new Delta is coming as is a new Cathay L1011 in the classic green livery.
I want them all , but i think i am becoming a 1/200 junkie iso a collector lol.

I did not know this! I knew the L-1011s had white horizontal stabs, but not the entire fleet. Will have to check my GJ EA B722. What about bare metal livery jets?

I used to see them everytime when flying into AMS. For me, exotic would be any Asian carrier.
But again....do I really need another model?!

One more pic with other lighting.
It is a great looking model must admit even with the wrong coloured stab.

The Super Tristar is a beauty and I have a Cathay Pacific coming also from the Inflight.

Interestingly, Inflight seems to be sooo proud of being able to release every single L-1011 they have already done - but now with shiny polished belly - that they HAVE NOT learned anything!

The horizontal stab color was a BIG topic here years ago when the model was released - now they do it in white color - correct - but with coroguard in the center of it - INCORRECT! And to even top that mistake, they do it on the lower AND the upper surface!

Same with so many other L-1011 re-releases... for each corrected mistake of the original release they do 'invent' two new mistakes on the re-release. Almost ridiculous.

Funnily you can even see the white paint for reference on the box.

Nevertheless a nice model. Maybe they do this kind of things just to release it again in a few years time

Looking at photos of IF's EA B722, they made the same mistake on the horizontal stabs. And GJ didn't get it right on their EA B722, either.

I tell you what's going to happen: if even the so-called 'quality brands' won't make it right, the collectors will - step-by-step - be fed up with their sloppiness (or lack of professionalism (or the combination of both)) and stop buying them. I am about to do so already, to say the least.

Omitting this critical detail of the EA white top scheme is a common error. That's why there are photos all over the internet. To keep from making these kinds of blunders. Not to mention, there are many collectors who have this kind of knowledge and take details like this very seriously before buying model -- all of whom would be more than happy to help vet a photo of a sample on this site before a model is committed to production.
