1/144 R5D-3 Blue Angels
Here is the Minicraft 1/144 C-54 kit released as the Blue Angels R5D-3. I think this livery is one of the most attractive schemes for Blue Angels logistical aircraft carried. I think it perfectly suits the lines of the aircraft. it also has a great 50's period feel with the scallops on the engine cowlings.
good luck using the kit decals for the engine cowlings. I had to hand paint the designs- but used the decals as guides. I loved building this kit.
