Developed by Lockheed in the 1950s, the L-188 Electra was a low wing, Turboprop airliner fit to carry a decent size of passengers across a medium range. First flight was undertaken in 1957, with deliveries to customers taking place in the following few years.

The L-188A has a capacity of around 100 passengers, with a range around 1,900 nautical miles, and is powered by a quartet of Allison 501-D13 Turboprop engines. Total power is around 11,200kw combined on takeoff, with a service ceiling of 28,400 ft, a top speed of 448 mph, and a maximum weight of 113,000 lbs.

Western Airlines operated twelve of the L-118A through their service life, seeing deliveries in the late 50s and early 60s. Now, of the 170 manufactured in the world, only two L-188s remain in active airliner service as of 2018. The rest of the Electras still operated serve as firefighters and tankers, or cargo aircraft duties. This Die-Cast version has an accurate paint scheme, etched panel lines, pad printed decals, and detailed landing gear. Also includes a display stand to show the model in flight. Measures 6”l with a 6” wingspan at 1:200 scale.
