Default Eastern Airlines L1011! BIG!!!!!!

...before any of you guys go on and say "just another Philippines" model, check the detail on this one! I've only recently found this manufacturer on ebay, and we have been exchanging emails for a couple of week now. All I can say from Jun, the gentleman in charge, is that hes not only a great guy, but hes very humble and polite.I've ordered a model from him, and hes emailed me back today, with pre-production photos of the carved wood, asking if I was pleased with the result...how about that he!?
I am looking forward to order more models from him, he has great prices, in some models shipping is included! Quite happy so far.But I will write about this in due time....with photos...in the meantime, check his work at his ebay shop, some models may not be that accurate, but the rest of them are spot on ! Germanair Bac 1-11, Embraer Bandeirante, Beechcraft are only a few of the really good ones !
heres his latest work, a GIANT L1011 in EAL colours ! Beautiful !!!!

That is one GORGEOUS Eastern L-1011!! The only change I'd make is for it to be painted white.

Looks very good. But I'm sure that the bird insignia is the wrong way round. I have a few custom made Phillipine models, and I'm happy with them, but I know some collectors don't like them, and there are some terrible wooden models out there. This guys stuff looks pretty good though.

Since my Bader split in a climate controls room I won't do wood again, unless its an antique / historic.
