Hello all. I am rather new to this site, but was hoping that someone out there can help me out with a project that I am working on. I am currently in the process of trying to build a 1/144 scale model of the Lockheed L-1011-500. Is there anyone who could help me with a drawing of where the aircraft was shortened?? I already know the dimensions, but just ain't sure of how the rear of the aircraft was shortened. The front half is pretty obvious. Thanks for any help.

If you look at the other series...they have that very last passenger cabin at the rear, between the number 3 and 4 doors. the last door being that undersized emergency exit. However the -500 doesn't have that last part of the cabin. There is only a 13ft difference between the 2 airframes i believe
