AC-47, Monogram C-47 Conversion in 1/48th
This was my second attempt at the AC-47. The Spooky was so incredible I built one back in the 1980’s. This one 20 plus years later had the help of a resin kit for the guns and gun sight. I re-scribed all the panel lines and made the flaps from scratch. I detailed the cockpit which is almost impossible to see, so I removed the hatch as I had seen in pictures. It must have just been too damn hot to leave it closed in South Vietnam. The kit was typical Monogram with decent fit but some issues, nice detail and overall good lines. This is still one of my favorites. It is just too big to display at home so I keep it wrapped up.
