ITALERI DOUGLAS C-47 SKYTRAIN

January 9, 2023 · in Aviation · · 10 Comments

Well, after "recovering" from the dreaded Covid-19, I've now been diagnosed with Chronic Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (yep, I've never heard of it before either.) So work on the Victory has taken a back step. To try and cheer me up / motivate me, my son asked me to build this for him. 1:72 scale, OOB.

So far, so good. Its not perfect as my brain "fogs up" and tiredness kicks in. Decals were a nightmare, especially around the fuselage (grabbed instantly and VERY fragile)

Just going to give it a wash, then attach the remaining parts.

More photos to follow eventually

Thanks for looking

  1. Looks wonderful, Tony!
    Sorry to hear for your health issue, hope things will get better.

  2. Good work on this so far, I’m sure modelling helps the recovery along.

  3. Sorry to hear about your struggle. Myself is close to two years fighting my way back. Try stay focused at short times, fight it. Please contact me privately if you feel like it. Support is vital.

    C-47 looks good!

  4. Coming along nicely, Tony @tonyanderton
    Wishing you a quick recovery.

  5. Looks Dandy to me Tony. Nice work. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Modelling will help on keeping those neutrons firing. Looking forward to seeing more.

  6. Looking good! Hang in there.

  7. Your C-47 is looking great. I had Covid this past October. By the end of November I finally felt normal. Everyone is different, stay positive and I wish you a speedy recovery. This is a great hobby to forget about the bad stuff.

  8. Coming along nicely, despite the fog! Prayers to return to full good health!

  9. Gonna call this finished. just to add the antenna wire when my new supply of "ezi-line" arrives. Not too bad, but considering my state of health at the moment, i'm happy with it.
