Smile A bird of a different feather…

Since many of you here are also airplane enthusiasts and collectors (like one of our Deputy Commanders ), I’ve decided to show you one of my latest acquisitions, the extremely rare 1/400 Blue Box L1011 TAP "Fernando Pessoa" (old colours).
Lockheed’s Tristar series is one of my favourite wide-bodies ever built, a close 2nd after the B747.
As a side note, the shown GSE (ground service equipment) is a mix of Herpa and Gemini Jets.
More pics soon…enjoy!
Jorge

Nice looking craft, and I still love the airport display; what a great way to give a sense of scale & 'real-worldness.'

I don't know if it's just me, but only 3 of the pics are showing up. Link problems?

Thank you very much guys!

You're right CR…it seems ImageShack is experiencing some problems (again!), hopefully the missing pics will be up-and-running again. I’ll keep a close-eye on this as I hate posts with broken image links.

In the meantime, here are some pics that I’ve just posted on DAC (die-cast aircraft forum). These show another rarity, this time within the 1/500 scale: a B707 TAP Cargo old colours.

Static models on shelves never did much to me thus why I prefer to see them in a more dramatic setting such as an airport diorama. I’m waiting for a nice big airport tarmac diorama that should arrive soon from San Diego (see link)…looks very promising!
