A real old beauty from way back in 1980 when Hasegawa launched their 1/200 Love Liner 200 Civil Aircraft Series, the British Airways Negus & Negus livery L-1011 Tristar. I always felt it a shame that Hasegawa never went on to produce a -500 series or at least include an extra sprue with the 'Frisbee' streamlining stem that was later added to the underside the centre engine of a number airlines L-1011's and was a standard feature of the -500. It is not difficult to add to the kit, just annoying the manufacturer didn't as the alteration in 1/200 would have been relatively easy to mill out of the original mould. My kit was still sealed until last weekend when I got this one onto the work bench - it was raining hard and needed something to do while my 777's and Pokémon 747 were drying off after some decaling. I felt a bit sad breaking the kits contents bag seal but the kit was intended to be built, as opposed to be kept as a reminder of when manufacturers of civil aircraft kits actually thought of BA as a livery worth including in their range. here she is so far, ready for the windows to be infilled. I am deliberating whether or not to have her flaps and slats deployed. As you can see from her nearly 39 year old decal sheet, Hasegawa had some very ludicrous ideas about how their modellers went about building a kit with a solid blue under-belly. Thanks for following if this type of kit interests you
