The Lockheed Star Liner was developed as a competitor to the Douglas DC-7C which was selling much better than the Lockheed Constellations. The performance of the Constellations was not as good as the DC-7 and range was shorter too. The Star liner was given an improved wing, bigger engines for speed and more fuel for better range. However performance was not as good as the DC-7C and sales were not as good as hoped. 57 were built. Only a couple are still flying and most have been scraped, or destroyed.
The model was built near to scale in real units and built based on drawings, photos, and other documents. This model has a moderately detailed cockpit and the following animateable features; ailerons, split flaps, elevators, rudder, propeller (is animated), canopy, landing gear, and landing gear doors.These models render very well and look very realistic using good animation and rendering technique. It can be used in an animated or static position within an animation or animated video, or possibly for programming for a flight simulation application. This model was not designed for 3d printing, these are to be used as digital files only. Exporting of models is limited but good for several software applications. This model is fully textured with all materials UVW mapped and applied. Most materials are planar mapped and major materials include texturing. All textures and materials are included as shown. Objects are logically named for ease of scene management.No cleaning up necessary, just drop your models into the scene and start rendering.No special plug-ins are needed to open scene. In most cases the liveries are based on actual service liveries or paint schemes. Many of the units, airlines or countries who flew the plane are represented here. Dreamscape Studios is a US 3d modeling firm specializing in building high definition, accurate, and detailed 3D models of commercial, civilian, and military airplanes, ships, buildings and other subjects.Dreamscape 3d models are built in ultra-low to ultra-high polygon count, (most often) near to scale and include a good amount of detail based on the resolution target.
