@ngmodel,

Is the PSA Tristar with the special underbelly fairing a realistic possibility?

There are 18 photos on Airliners.net here: https://www.airliners.net/search?air...&airline=45379

This page also has lots of photos: http://www.psa-history.org/about_psa...ckheed-l-1011/

If you do the PSA L-1011 with the extra fairing then it also opens up the opportunity to do the Aero Peru and Worldways L-1011s. Both used the PSA Tristars after they were sold on. Plus there is N10114 with the promotional livery airline stickers as in your shot.

It was a simple structural addition designed to prevent 'fuselage scrape' in the event of a collapsed gear or belly landing as this particular customer opted to convert hold space for a cosy passenger lounge. It would be nice to see it included on the model, possibly as a plastic add on.

2. Then they were updated with a grey belly but kept the same titles

3. In the 1990s the titles were changed to 'We are the Caribbean' as in your photo:

4. The last scheme was the wonderful green drum colours:
