Default The Aeroclassics 1/400 Lockheed Starliner wishlist

Absolutely delighted to see the return of the Aeroclassics Lockheed L-1649A Starliner and in the later Lufthansa livery. Now that begs the question, does the comeback of this mould mean that more castings have been run off for more Starliner releases? If so it would be nice to see another in the Lufthansa delivery scheme made again, but with the correct 'Star' logo added. Also another TWA one would also be very welcome.
As for different liveries, still one important one that would be nice to have is Luxair, which operated three of these throughout the '60s and were regulars at London Gatwick. They wore two schemes, firstly in dark turquoise blue trim and later in the more familiar light turquoise colours as shown.

Well, the first issues in TWA, Air France and Lufthansa colours must have completely sold out quickly, as you can't find any of them anywhere.

I swore off buying any more 1/400 models, but your new Lufthansa L1649 caused me to fall off the wagon. Counting this one, I have eight of your Connies in my 300 model collection - I'm holding up my end...Doug

Thank-you Doug! You just blew some additional life into this mould and we will try one more; something classy perhaps, with a polished belly!!
