Why not re-scale an Electra drawing to your model's size?



Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

General L-188 frame spacing is 19", the windows fit between the frames.

Four pages on the L-188 from Flight:

i have a question regarding the L-188,

i just bought a 1/72 P-3 orion, but im planning to demilitarise it into an updated, shortened version of the Electra,


This should help then but scroll down a bit. Also notice the first conversion set in 1/72 -- a Carvair;
