    hello i was wondering if anyone has a FREE model of the Lockheed Constellation or can tell me where i can buy one at

  2. If you find one let me know. The only ones I have ever found are commercial and quite pricey. I may break down one day and actually buy one but not yet. I keep hoping one of our generous designers will design one. But they often avoid models that are commercially available. Then again it may not interst them.

    Lex is someone who comes to mind for this one. He likes Commercial aircraft. This one was desinged initially as a passenger plane. It is a favorite of mine.

    Go to Nobi's site and vote for the EC-121.......... this is the US Navy's AEW of the Constellation

    Almost forgot, I built the Paper Trade Connie a couple of years ago, it went together very well.
  6. Uh----I think the key word he used was "Free"

    Free was his prefered option, but where to buy one was also asked. Monduni is a great firm to deal with if you live in Germany, but the shipping charges for overseas are a wee bit out of line imo.

    One of the members here did a very nice (free) 707, I have it on my hard drive but I can't find his name on it. Not on your list but Lex's DH Comet is not to be sneered at.

    John Leslie at the Lower Hudson Valley paper model giftshop (http://jleslie48.com/index.html) has both a 707 and L-1011 available as free downloads.

    You can download it from Lex' site. It is a beautiful model, although requires some experience. I upscaled it to 1:50 and recoloured it in BOAC colours and Lex designed the wing leading edge tanks for it, see the Cardmodelers Forum.
    Just a few pics to show how it looks like. It was build in a combination of white photo printer paper and Red River silver paper (although that is slightly too thin for this size).

  17. Hey Scon, that is a great job. I was thinking of printing it on Redriver paper myself. Now that I know it looks that fantastic I think I will.. Nice job. I see your logo is the Connie. Have you built that one too?

    Scon, once again I have to say that is a lovely bit of work.

    Yes, the Super Constellation was build from silver, white, red and blue cardboard on a balsa framework, scratchbuilt. If you do a search for Scon10, you can find some threads with pictures of the few models I made in this way. Don't forget to see the thread "Fun with foto's".
    Have fun!
