I've written about Aeroclassics GSE sets a few times. For earlier posts on this subject see:
Below you can see the makeup of this standalone set. In fact it is really made up of two sets. Five of the items are branded with the Mainliner shield from the 1960s, five are adorned with the Saul Bass tulip scheme whilst the rest don't have logos and can be used with either of the other two groups.
This cross-livery aspect to the set is great as it allows the collector to make dioramas fitting multiple decades and generations of aircraft. The set gave me the excuse to break out my Wright Field diorama for a photo-shoot with the new GSE.
I began with a selection of shots of aircraft in the 1960s Mainliner livery. United had a diverse fleet of piston engined props (DC-6s, DC-7s, Convairs), turboprops (Viscounts) and early jets (Caravelles, DC-8s, 720s) in the early 1960s.
In part 2 I'll take a look at United in the 1970s.
