KIT FOUND - Revell 1/144 L.1049G Super Constellation

Recommended Posts

My kit of this is under construction, rather slooooowly, and I'm not willing to part with it and don't have a second one.

What I will contribute is that it took a bit of extra effort to give wings the correct dihedral; assembling it stock they would have  come out rather flat. Right now I can't give a degree angle what the dihedral on the real deal is, but it was rather more than I had expected.

Also, note that the cabin window transparencies have a definite top and bottom, subtle shape differences but definite shape differences.

--> Might not be an issue if one assembles kit box stock but I cut window strips apart to clear fuselage bulkheads I made and inserted as the view blocks they would be in the real deal.

My kit was an ebay purchase and was missing one of the clear window strips so I back filled it with evergreen strip and filled all the holes in with CA.   I plan to use decals for the windows anyway.   As for dihedral of the wings, mine seemed to be right on the money straight out of the box.  Best of luck on your build, it looks like it's coming along nicely.
