C-47 Search and Rescue
This is the Hasegawa 1/200th scale C-47 Skytrain Search and Rescue kit released in 2000. I believe the original model was released in 1994 as a DC-3 with All Nippon Airways markings.
This kit made back in 2000. It’s painted with the now long gone, Aeromaster Acrylics.
Doors and other details are represented as decals. If memory serves me correctly, chevrons on the underside of the fuselage, were also supplied as decals, I chose to paint these, as it would be far easier than using the decals provided. The ailerons were highlighted with black gauche to make them stand out more.
I really can’t remember much about making the model, other than after I’d finished it, I wanted to get the D-Day version. But alas, couldn’t find one at the time. The model is approximately 4 inches long (100mm), with a wingspan of approximately 6 inches long (150mm).
