Eastern Airlines: from the Great Silver Fleet to the HockeyStick

I've posted some shots before but there have been new additions and some extra tarting up of the display area so I thought I'd start by showing one small section of my 1:400 collection of US Classics off. I have over 200 models almost all of which date from the 1940s-1990 from US Trunk and Local Service Airlines.

In this thread I wanted to show my Eastern Air Lines fleet. In chronological order we have the following models:

From the 1950s:

Moving into the 1960s we have:

Into the 1970s and the silver New Mark colours:

Finally the 1980s dawn with the modified silver hockeystick:

1758Eastern AirlinesDC-10-30HockeystickReal MetalN391EAGJEAL282GEMINI JETS


Eastern was a great airline with a great batch of liveries and soon there'll be two more arriving in the form of a white hockeystick 727-100 and a silver hockeystick DC-9-51. I hope you like my Eastern Fleet.
