Mini Whiskey 7 #2 1/48 Monogram C-47 Skytrain
I finished Mini W7 #1 roughly a year ago, and since then I’ve started volunteering at the museum that owns the real Whiskey 7. I donated Mini W7 #1 to the museum and she resides in their gift shop. So I had to build myself a Mini W7 #2. Just finished her up yesterday. She will be part of a display on my stand along with two other planes owned by the museum.
The kit is a 1978 Monogram 1/48 C-47 Skytrain. I used the Eduard photo etch interior, exterior and flaps. The area directly behind the cockpit was all scratch built. The seats in the cargo area were also scratch built, along with the pitot tube cover, gust locks, wheel chocks, flags, antenna, stairs, anti collision light, and donation bomb. Paints used were a combination of Model Master enamels, Tamiya acrylics and a custom mix of acrylic craft paint thinned with a mix of future and water.
