Revell 1/48 Douglas C-47 Dakota USAAF PTO
Built two years ago.
Because there are a lot of D-Day striped Dakota models out there, I convinced my father to do a PTO aircraft.
Revell Germany kit (Berlin airlift) with North Star Models decals. They came without US insignias (and the kit only included post-war ones), took them from a Monogram B-24 kit.
The kit shows it´s age, the moulds are from the same year as I :lol:, fit, especially the windscreen and landing light covers aren´t good, moulding quality is mostly still ok.
Regarding the windscreen, as mentioned bad fit and tricky to install, my dad decided to cut away the bigger side windows and use some clear plastic pieces to display open windows.
Added brake lines with lead wire, aerials are done with elastic thread/EZ Line. Painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics.
