L-1049 "Super Constellation," 1950 - Silver Classics Collection

Historical Note:


We're happy to unveil Atlas' Silver Classics line of silver-plated, die cast metal models. Unlike any other die cast line we've ever offered, it has a unique set of features:

  • Classic passenger aircraft from the immediate post-WWI era to today (and tomorrow)
  • 1:200 scale
  • Plated in genuine silver
  • Wooden base with metal nameplate
  • Limited Edition
  • Branded packaging with certificate of authenticity

Best of all, these unique features have been applied to some of the most groundbreaking and collectible aircraft in history:  the first all-metal passenger plane, huge flying boats from the 1920s and '30s, the first airliner with a pressurized cabin, the post-WWII two- and four-engine propliners that opened the world to travel, the first jetliner, and more ... right up through SpaceShipTwo, which is racing to be the first designed to carry paying passengers to space. And these Silver Classics are great not only for collectors, but they make wonderful executive gifts, too, so they can even help you expand your market!

The Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation is an American aircraft, a member of the Lockheed Constellation aircraft line. The L-1049 was Lockheed's response to the successful Douglas DC-6 airliner, first flying in 1950. The aircraft was also produced for both the United States Navy and Air Force as transport and AWACS aircraft. Designed and built by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation to the specification of the legendary Howard Hughes, the Constellation, the world's first commercially successful pressurized airliner, heralded a new post-war era of safe, comfortable and fast transatlantic air travel. This graceful looking aircraft with its long sinuous fuselage - curving downward at the nose and upward at the rear to its distinctive tripletail, became synonymous with the halcyon days of the big Propliners and is still widely regarded with awe and affection. In all, 856 Constellations were built, ranging from the first C-69 variant to the magnificent L-1649 Starliner. Sadly 55 years after the first aircraft flew, only a handful remains airworthy as a vibrant reminder of perhaps the most beautiful propliner of them all.
