Hobby Master - 1/200 L-1049A Breitl-ing Super Constella
In response to the Douglas DC-4 Lockheed developed the Constellation. As more powerful engines were developed the Constellation was stretched 21 feet and improvements made resulting in the L-1049G Super Constellation. The development of the L-1049G improved range with the addition of wing-tip tanks. The more powerful engines made it necessary to use large propellers that required the aircraft to sit quite high off the ground. A triple tail was developed because the size of a single tail would have been too large to fit in any hangar.
Manufactured in 1954 as 54-0156 a C-121C 54-156 c/n 1049F-4175 was delivered in November 1955 to the MATS Atlantic Division. From 1962 until 1972 54-0156 was assigned to ANGs and then retired. In 1973 the aircraft became an agricultural sprayer registered as N73544. After several sales it was leased by the Constellation Historical Society and the Super Constellation Flyers Association (SCFA) in 2003. In 2004 the aircraft was flown to Switzerland and in 2007 the group purchased the aircraft, registered it as HB-RSC based in Switzerland participating in air shows.
