The EC-121R Super Constellation


This Model depicts the EC-121R, number: 67-21473 station at Korat Royal Thai AFB supporting the "Operati9on Igloo White" circa 1971. This model is the Heller Warning Star kit modified to the EC-121R configuration by adding the various ECM, HF, VHF, and UHF antennas and deleting the top and bottom radomes. The flaps, flap wells and tires are resin parts from Fisher Models. The kit was painted with Testors Model-Master enamels and weather with chalk pastels. The figure, maintenance stand and fire extinguisher came from the Hasegawa accessory kits.
