New Tooling! Trans World airlines TWA Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation HL9001 "N6901C," Star of the Thames," Trans World Airlines Scale 1:200 As a response to the Douglas DC-4 Lockheed developed the Constellation. As more powerful engines were developed the Constellation was stretched 21 feet and improvements made resulting in the L-1049G Super Constellation. The development of the L-1049G improved range with the addition of wing-tip tanks. The more powerful engines made it necessary to use large propellers that required the aircraft to sit quite high off the ground. A triple tail was developed because the size of a single tail would have been too large to fit in any hangar. TWA was a major proponent in the development of the Lockheed Constellation receiving its first aircraft October 1, 1945. Eventually they owned 156 Connies with 29 of them being L- 1049Gs. N7125C “Star of Chenonceaux” c/n 4652 was delivered to TWA August 27, 1956. The aircraft was leased to Iberia in March 1960 and on November 8, 1960 the aircraft landing gear hit an object on final approach to Barcelona and tore the wheels off. The aircraft slid 170m on the runway before skidding off and bursting into flames. Specifications for the 3 Lockheed L-1049 variants Very Detailed with spinning props and landing gear. Includes stand. Die Cast Model.
