Heller 1/72 Lockheed EC-121 “Warning Star”
BIG ! This is a large, old kit, that shows both it’s size and age. There are several aftermarket kits, for those who want to upgrade. Mine is straight from the box. There are few parts, but a lot of plastic, and it takes a lot of weight to hold that nose down. Aftermarket decals allow for several schemes. All my “difficulties” came from it’s enormity. It seemed that every time I glued on a part at one end, I’d break off a part at the other. I called it a “bull in a China shop”. It’s big enough to be impressive, yet a simple build.
