Eastern Airlines Super Constellation Aluminium Model Airplane

About

Very rare Lockheed Corporation L-1049 Super Constellation (Connie) Eastern Airlines model airplane, circa 1950s. The plane is massive measuring 26.5" in depth (fuselage) with a wing span of 33.5". This handsome and highly collectible polished aluminium aircraft model is on a detachable stand and retains the majority of it's original decals and labels. The four revolving propellers remain intact with the original plastic spinning circles. The Lockheed Constellation was a propeller driven, four-engined airliner built by Lockheed Corporation from 1943-1958 in Burbank, CA. Lockheed built numerous models of the plane-all with the same triple-tail design and dolphin shaped fuselage. Eastern Airlines had 76 Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation's in their fleet from 1951-1968. The plane was most likely an executive factory desk model or used in a travel agency. Overall condition is very good and aircraft is 100% original. Has a few dings and scratches on the body and there is some decal fading and missing paint. This is truly a unique and rare piece for any aviation fan!
