1:300 Scale  Diecast Metal – Lockheed L1049 Super Constellation – Length:4.5"  Wingspan: 4.75”

 

This Super Constellation model is made to be displayed with the landing gear in the extended position. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall.

 

The box is labeled as Adult Collectible Model and Recommends 14 and older.

 

Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. The engines are part of the wing assembly, which in turn is one single piece. There are very few gaps and/or joints in this model.

 

A stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).

 

The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.

 

The box measures 6" x 6" x 3"
