HL1008 HobbyMaster Braniff Intl. L-188 Electra Model Airplane

This is a 1:200 scale die-cast model airplane from Hobby Master of the L-188 Electra in the Braniff International Airways colors. In 1928 the Braniff brothers started a small airline that was bought out but they started Braniff Airways in 1930. The company lasted until 1982 when it was financially forced to close. Braniff was the first U.S. air carrier to fly between north and South America. This is when “International “ was added to the company name. Another first was the fact that Braniff was the first airline to offer “Hostess" service to tend to the passengers comfort. Over the years Braniff flew numerous aircraft with one being the Lockheed L-188 Electra. They promoted the aircraft as a Prop-Jet and used its speed and comforts as large selling features. Braniff purchased 9 L-188A aircraft configured for 75 passengers plus a six-place lounge and five crew members. The 9 Electras had tail numbers N9701C – N9709C. The first aircraft to be delivered was N9701C and it arrived on April 29, 1958 and began regular scheduled service on June 15, 1959. After many years with Braniff N9701C was sold and over the years owned by 4 or 5 other companies. The last owner was Air Spray in Canada and in July 2003 it was destroyed while fighting a forest fire.
In 1954 American Air Lines was in the market for a 75 to 100 passenger aircraft for its short to medium range domestic routes. In response Lockheed developed the low wing L-188 Electra powered by four sleek turboprops instead of the usual large radial engines or jet turbines. The combination of engine and the Hamilton Standard propeller offered a an altitude of 20,000  25,000 feet. When production ended in 1961 there had been 170 Electras completed. 
Hobby Master "1:200 Airliner Series" diecast airplanes feature:


- Diecast metal construction with some plastic components.
- Realistic panel lines and surface details.
- Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
- Optional extended/retracted landing gear.
- Presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight".
- Accurately detailed underside with concealed screwheads.
