Default 1:50 Schaarschmidt Lufthansa L-1049G Super Constellation

Well, guys - time for a new additon to my Lufthansa model-collection. This time it's a model nearly 60 years old: A 1/50 Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation made for Lufthansa probably in 1955 by "Modellbau Schaarschmidt" - a manufacturer from Berlin. The aluminium-model has detachable sheet-metal wings and a stand with technical information on it. Length is 68 cm (26,8 inches), wing-span is 73 cm (28,7 inches). More pictures on my homepage!

That is one sweet looking model! Looks like a beautifully sculpted mold. From the pic it appears in fantastic condition for its age. Congrats on a wonderful classic addition to the collection.

Thanks for your kind words! Did you know that D-ALAK was the first Lufthansa aircraft lost in an accident?

From wikipedia.org:

"Lufthansa Flight 502 was a scheduled flight from Hamburg, Germany to Buenos Aires, Argentina; on 11 January 1959, the flight was being operated by a Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation (registration D-ALAK).[1] On the leg between Senegal and Brazil the Super Constellation was on approach to Rio de Janeiro-Gale„o International Airport when it crashed near Flecheiras Beach just short of the runway. All 29 passengers and seven of the ten crew were killed.[1] It was the first fatal accident involving Lufthansa since it was formed in 1955.[2]"
