C-119C Flying Boxcar, 63rd TCS Kimpo Korea, 1952. Roden 1/144. Forgotten War build.

Having had this kit for awhile now, I originally wanted to do some sort of Flight of the Phoenix build, ala Jimmy Stewart, but he flew or crashed a C-82. It worked out well that the kit decals were of the Korean war. i was apprehensive about the kit and decals, I've heard some of their kits can be trouble some. it was not the case, I had no real trouble with the kit or decals. I did it wheels up, using the left over stand from my Atlantis B-52 kit.

    Now that there C-119 is a model not seen much. Very nice job on it Robert.

  2. 1/144, meaning very small, but you made it look great.
    Well done.

  3. Nicely done Robert, looks good.

  4. Very cool Robert. Great job on the panel variations, especially in this scale. Always liked this aircraft

  5. Great build, Robert @roofrat!
    I like the scheme a lot!

  6. Nicely done Robert, at 1/144 she can't be very large but she sure looks good to me.

  7. Great looking build Robert. Nice job with the outer wing panels, which paint did you use for the red?
    The C-119 is one aircraft I do not have in my stash but I'm always on the look out.

    • Thanks , I used Testors rattle can flat red,#1250.@georgeswork. the kit is pretty good, a bit small, It includes the parts for a AC-119 version, but no decals for it. It's getting rough doing rattle can, seeing as Rustoleum, which owns the Testors paint line seems to be stopping production.

  8. Nice job on a rare kit. Here's one from an unusual military museum near Anzio in Italy:
