Work on the L-1011 prototype began early in 1969, resulting in a November 16 1970 first flight. The engine choice of Rolls-Royce's advanced three shaft design RB211 however dogged the TriStar's early career. Rolls-Royce went bankrupt in February 1970 largely due to higher than estimated RB211 development costs, severely harming both Lockheed and the TriStar sales program. The problems were able to be resolved after the British government nationalised Rolls-Royce, guaranteeing the supply of production engines. Despite the initial problems the RB211 proved to be extremely reliable and efficient in service and grew into a family of variants.

Production ceased in 1983, when 250 had been built. The prototype was sold to be broken up for spares in 1986.

I've compared the quality of build and detail of this model to the competition and without doubt Scale Craft makes some of the very best and most accurately detailed models of the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar available anywhere. Considering the level of accuracy and detail represented, the cost is almost modest. Other 1:100 scale mahogany-built display models pale in comparison. Scale Craft is definitely the way to go, if you want the best in large 1:100 scale display models. I say this as an aerospace historian associated with an air museum. Care taken to pack and protect these models in shipment is also exceptional. You won't regret a purchase from this company!
