1/200 Dragon C-141B
November 30, 2015 in Aviation
Yes, only a 9 1/2″ wingspan! I built this as a presentation model for a buddy of mine. He flew F-4s in SEA then transitioned over to the 141s until retirement. He specifically requested the stretched version (B) in Lizard paint. Now that was a wise choice as the old kit I found over on Evil Bay had really toasted decals and I could not have done any other paint scheme without sourcing a new kit or set of decals.
Everything fit okay, with some wing joint work being minimal. I super glued up the rear cargo doors and worked the area over multiple times before it was ready for primer and paint. I think Dragon/DML never intended for the doors to be modeled in the closed position.
Paint is Model Master with a Future overcoat for decals and then a Polly Scale semi-gloss final finish. It looks the part and I will deliver it to my friend tomorrow at work.
