The Big Boy’s New Toy


A great find on eBay.

Constellation Model

An incredbile model of a Lockheed Super G Constellation in TWA colors.  The “Star Of America” actually exists and still flies today.  A recent picture.

This particular aircraft never flew for TWA.  It started its life as a freighter and went on to act as an aerial sprayer before being reborn by a group of enthusiasts in Kansas City.  The registration number is N6937C and she still flies today.

I am completely blown away by the quality of this model and I feel I stole it considering what I paid.  And, no, I’m not going to tell you.
