Of all the airliners ever built in America, the Lockheed Constellation has to be one of the most admired. A more beautiful airliner was never built, with its sensuously curved fuselage, superb streamlining and distinctive triple-tail. The “Connie” was typically described in superlatives and with the Super G Connie, TWA was able to offer non-stop Los Angeles to New York flights. This museum quality aero sculpture is hand-carved of mahogany and hand-painted. The Super Connie has a wingspan of 20.5” and is 19” long. 1/72 scale.

I used to fly TWA frequently, non-stop between LAX & JFK (then Idlewild), in '58-'59, on this gorgeous aircraft. And I don't recall that the plane had any (wing) tip tanks, as depicted on this model. Am I correct (no tip tanks), or was my attention too focused on those equally gorgeous stewardesses?
P.S.: The only other non-stop options were American & Pan Am. And the latter was usable only if you were final-ticketed to a foreign destination. UAL didn't offer a non-stop flight; they went via O'Hare. (This was before deregulation.)
