Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

1979 issue . Nicely done 1/144 scale kit of the famous (or infamous) three-holer in the historic Laker colors. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals are in amazing 'near mint++' condition. In 1971, air lines were highly regulated on both sides of the Atlantic. Freddie Laker thought he could fly passengers across the 'Pond' at a fraction of the current ticket prices. Using his successful experience from operating one of the most profitable UK charter airlines, Laker battled for years for permission to run his service at 1/3 of what the existing carriers charged. After 6 years, he finally won. On September 26, 1977, the Laker DC-10s began the first daily discount cross Atlantic flights from London to New York. Although Skytrain service has been long discontinued, Laker helped created the regulatory and business model for modern discount airlines, such as Southwest)
