  1. Sharp-lookin’ build, Allan….nicely finished and photographed. I like it.

  2. Allan, lovely Dak, unusual markings for us Yanks, and welcome. So many markings, so little time, says I. Money for plastic, as well.
    Where can I get Roo Decals?

  3. Hello Allan,
    I started with your build this morning.
    Really enjoyed the colorful machine.

  4. Very neat work (again) Allan, now, get those bikes posted here so that others can enjoy them as well!

  5. Great finish Alan. I’ve been tempted to grab the Red Roo conversion for the ANARE aircraft. The NMF, silver white and dayglo orange really set it off. You’ve done a great job on yours.

    Cheers, Mick

  6. Alan, Very eye catching scheme, and very well done. This is a beautiful model. “I like it” !

  12. Hi Alan @kalamazoo! Just came across your Dakota build and had a look at it.
    What a great job!
    Future seemed to give that nice shine.
    I have to say I love Australian birds.
    All the best!

  13. Great looking Dakota. Can’t go wrong with dayglow.

    Have a softback called DC-3 Down Under by Stewart Wilson, great inspiration for those interested in Aussie DC-3 and C-47.
