Default L-1011 1/100 scale restored.

This model came to me with engines missing and generally in bad shape. It was in Lockheed house colours and I refinished it in Eastern colours. Engines were sourced from a NITTO L-1011 kit. Decals came from Ray at 26 decals.

Another gem rescued! Very nice indeed, love that Eastern livery too.

I have one of those but it’s a L-1011-500 presentation model. Lovely livery.

I can answer the question regarding the B747. Though a series of trades, I ended up purchasing the B747 from another local fellow in Calgary. The model was actually in very nice shape with the exception of the underside. It was missing a stand and all four engines and the stand attach point was damaged.

I have always really liked this "Boeing roll-out livery". As a young lad I vividly recall the National Geographic & Life Mag pictures of the B747 Roll-out ceremonies back in 1969. I was fascinated with the B747. I remember seeing my first B747 at the Calgary Airport while sitting in a residential district on a hill about one mile west of the Airport as it rolled down the south runway taking off. From it's profile side view it looked like it was going way too slow to fly because of it's size- but it did. So this livery to me was very important for me to preserve. So that's exactly what I am doing. I happened to have a vintage Pacific Miniatures stand on-hand from an old long gone model and I sourced four new engines and I'm in the process of a mini restoration. I'm right now in the primer painting & sanding stage of the underside. Here are the pictures of where I'm at with it thus far.

Please resume on back on course regarding Tony's gorgeous L1011 restoration.

Back in the hangar with four brand new engines and an original stand and back to an airworthy condition.
