Product Code:

Sleek Lockheed 4-engine Model 1329 light business jet transport adapted to military service as a VIP transport and inspection aircraft. The kit offers crisp engraved panel lines, detailed landing gear, boxed-in wheel bays, wings with integral 'slipper' tanks, filigree antennae and injection-molded transparent parts (canopy, cabin windows, landing light fairings.) Decals and painting guide for a single camouflaged United States Air Force aircraft, s/n 59-5962, of the Military Airlift Command during the early 1980s.

"Slight for a military lifter and heavy for a business jet, the JetStar is distinctive – marked by four turbojet engines mounted in pairs at the rear of the fuselage, swept wings with integral slipper tanks, cruciform empennage and elongated nose. It is a remarkably advanced design considering its late ’50s origins." For more information on this kit, please visit the Ops Shack
