How big is the Heller Lockheed Constellation?

This is the Heller Lockheed Constellation, in 1/72nd scale. The model is big, with a length of about 22 inches, and a span of about the same. Not only is the kit big, I added a bunch of weight in the nose, making the model nose-heavy and awkward to hold. To the basic Heller kit, I added Fisher resin engines/props, and wheels.

Not only is the kit big, I added a bunch of weight in the nose, making the model nose-heavy and awkward to hold. To the basic Heller kit, I added Fisher resin engines/props, and wheels. I also used G-Factor brass landing gear to hold the weight of the completed model. Vintage Flyer decals were used for the TWA markings.

Is Heller plastic aftermarket?

The basic Heller plastic is just that…basic, requiring the use of aftermarket resin. I would like to mention that I purchased the terrific Fisher resin details before the terrible fire that wiped out the town of Paradise California, as well as Paul Fisher’s resin business. A terrible loss for us all, indeed.
