  1. Close ... but not there yet ...Review by John

    Just received this today and I must say I was expecting a better model. Aside from the fact mine arrived with the tail plane broken off and the antenna bent (easy fixes) I agree with the previous reviews regarding the landing gear size, de-icer boots being to wide etc. The engines, propellers are not accurate in size, shape or placement on the wing and lack detail.

    I sincerely hope Hobby Master does an L-1649 as the L-1049 is a gem. Perhaps in the process they will do a radar nosed L-1049 G. For now, i can only hope ...

  2. This could have been a five star model if Herpa just made two corrections.Review by Stevej
    Customer Rating

    The overall shape of the model is excellent. The wheels Herpa put on the model are too small a diameter so I had to replace them. The flat black de-icer boots on the leading edge of the wing go too far back on the wing, they should end at the grey wing panel, but the grey wing panel is placed too far aft on the wing. My reference was a photo of one of these airplanes on it's delivery flight to TWA. The engines are acceptable but according to the photo they should extend farther outward from the leading edge. I had to add a few other details to the model to make it accurate. Had I not been able to make these changes I would have sent it back. (Posted on 5/22/2011)

  3. Herpa 200 TWA Lockheed L-1649A Starliner N7301C (cn 1002) "Star of Wyoming" Review by James F

    There is only one picture of this aircraft on Airliners.net: http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?cx=partner-pub-8297169501225184%3Aa05n2n-tzky&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=N7301C&sa=Submit&search_active=1&search=&sheadline=&search_field=datedesc&submit=&siteurl=www.airliners.net%2F

    I have issue with how the nose is depicted on this model compared to the image of the real plane. The nose is too short and I don't think it is just because of the black paint on the radome. The antenna behind the cockpit is properly placed and to scale. Would it be neat if one of the model makers ever decided to add the wire that extends from the antenna to the middle tail?

    The shape of the engines is correct on the model but more details could have been easily added if Herpa would examine pictures like the above image. The wheels and tires could be improved with a little more detail like being able to see the hubs so to speak. The doors are painted in the doors are painted in the correct position and the american flag is place correctly over the three windows aft of the passenger door. In those days passengers loaded through the rear door rather than the forward one.

    There was a question on one of the forums about the wing heater (black) being too wide but you can not tell from the image on A-net.

    The model follows the real aircraft with regard to the twin stripe almost touching the third window behind the the forward door.

    Overall Herpa has reasonably depicted one of my favorite airlines.

    The aircraft came out as the jets were taking over and almost immediately, as the airlines want to be know as "all jet" these types of planes were sold off, scraped or converted to cargo and then sold off. This airplane gave the DC-7 a real run for its money back in the "day."
