Blackbird Bizjet (version 1)
January 27, 2015 in Aviation
Lockheed L-1271-6 “what-if” six-passenger bizjet in Evergreen Aviation scheme. The idea for this came from a gab session with one of my fellow model club members circa 1991. I commenced to build it, finished it mid-1993.
It is kitbashed (Moi? Kitbashing? Go figure!) by patching a Hasegawa Falcon-10 48th fuselage into a Testors SR-71A. The cockpit and cabin are populated with the parts from the Hasegawa kit. The foyer and boarding steps are scratch built, the door is made into one piece from the two Falcon-10 parts. The decals are from several of the Airliners International (long OOB) sheets. The paints are custom mixed to match the decals using Testors Enamels.
Yes, there is a Blackbird Bizjet (version 2).
