RARE & VINTAGE 1968 ROLAN PLASTICS INC. 1/200 SCALE LOCKHEED L-1011 TRISTAR JET TRANSPORT SOLID RESIN AND METAL FACTORY MANUFACTURER MARKETING AND SALES PROMOTIONAL DESK TOP DISPLAY MODEL AIRPLANE AND STAND.

eBay Auction Description:

This auction is for a RARE & VINTAGE 1968 ROLAN PLASTICS INC. 1/200 SCALE LOCKHEED L-1011 TRISTAR JET TRANSPORT SOLID RESIN AND METAL FACTORY MANUFACTURER MARKETING AND SALES PROMOTIONAL DESK TOP DISPLAY MODEL AIRPLANE AND STAND.

The model maker, Rolen Plastics Inc, was established as a company in the 1960s by two ex-Topping employees, Mr. Roberts and Mr. Lenovitch. An offshoot of Topping Models, along with Precise Models, and was one of the better model makers of it's time. Similar to Raise Up, Verkuyl, Osgaard, Allyn, Pacific Miniatures, Space Models, Westway, and the others that were famous back in the glory days of airline transportation.

This model airplane is a solid one (1) piece constructed airliner, made of resin and metal plated composite type materials. The wings and stabilizers do not disconnect from the model's fuselage. The model itself measures approximately 10.60" long x 9.25" wingspan x 3.75" tall. The hard plastic and metal stand measures approximately 6.50" long x 4.25" wide (varies) x 5.75" tall (varies).

Important Information About The Condition Of This Model Airplane & Stand:

The model airplane shows some very minor, dirt, smudge, scratch, smudge, and minor paint loss spots on various areas of the airplane. There's also some very minor wear on the wingtip edges, stabilizer tip edges and tail section edges. There's some very minor decal loss and minor yellowing of the original decals. The model airplane itself, tends to lean somewhat forward, while connected to it's stand. The stand has some very small scratch, scuff and smudge and dirt spots on it. The model airplane and stand are in excellent condition for being approximately forty four (44) years old. The model airplane and stand are being sold in "as is condition". The original Lockheed Corporation/Roland Plastics Inc. factory box is unfortunately not included. I will certainly take great care in packing, boxing and shipping this vintage airplane model to the high winning eBay bidder.

A Short History about the Lockheed L-1011 Tristar Airplane:

The Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, commonly referred to as the L-1011 (pronounced "Ell-ten-eleven") or TriStar, is a medium-to-long range, widebody trijet airliner. It was the third widebody airliner to enter commercial operations, after the Boeing 747 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10. The aircraft has a seating capacity of up to 400 persons and a range of over 4,000 nautical miles (7,410 km). Its trijet configuration places one Rolls-Royce RB211 engine under each wing, with a third, center-mounted RB211 engine connected by S-duct to an air inlet mounted at the junction of the tail and the upper fuselage. The aircraft further features autoland capability, an automated descent control system, and available lower deck galley and lounge facilities.

The L-1011 TriStar was produced in two fuselage lengths. The original L-1011-1 first flew in November 1970, and entered service with Eastern Air Lines in 1972. The shortened, long-range L-1011-500 first flew in 1978, and entered service with British Airways a year later. The original length TriStar was also produced as the high gross weight L-1011-100, uprated engine L-1011-200, and further upgraded L-1011-250. Post-production conversions for the L-1011-1 with increased takeoff weights included the L-1011-50 and L-1011-150.

Between 1968 and 1984, Lockheed manufactured a total of 250 TriStars. The aircraft's sales were hampered by two years of delays due to developmental and financial problems at Rolls-Royce, the sole manufacturer of the TriStar's engines. After production ended, Lockheed withdrew from the commercial aircraft business due to its below-target sales.
