Default Raise up Eastern L188 hockey stick

Just arrived. All complete with original stand and just a few touchups. Looks awesome!

Very nice! Too bad this one had its bird stand's head and tail chopped! When Eastern changed its livery in the mid 60's they brought back to the EAL Miami model shop all of their corporate models that had bird stands and repainted them and chopped off the heads and tails off the stands. Thanks to this site some time back I was able to purchase an EAL Golden Falcon L-188 survivor in near mint condition to include its wooden transit case.

Thanks for the update. I did not know all that but i did notice the stand looked similar and the engine nacelles have a tinge of red underneath the paint.

I think Gary Field still sells the full bird upright reproduction for that stand.

I just noticed how the port side cockpit skylight window decal is upside down! Ughhh what terrible quality control. Either that or the EA model shop had high school kids working on the decaling!

They probably ran out of the left side window decal and used a right side one. I have a large Lockheed sheetmetal model that the EAL model shop re-decaled using Raise-up DC7 Golden Falcon decal sheet.
