With help from fellow member and modeler Tom Bebout , I was able to locate this model. I am adding it to my D-Day / Operation Overlord collection to display at our local library. The kit is #5944 Junkers /3m Transport. A few areas were tricky, takes a lot of test fitting but over all it was a fun build!

    Please tell him I said hello.

  3. Nicely done Robert, she looks nice. And big too.

  6. Your library will be very pleased with this latest addition to their display, I hope they’ve sufficient room.

    • I’m sure it will fit. I previously had a B-24 and a B-17 on the shelves

  7. Very nice work and a great result.

    Amazingly, this kit and the Catalina were produced by Monogram because they had been #1 and #2 respectively on every Modeler's Most Wanted survey for the10 years before they arrived. Once available, they became shelf-sitters. I tell that story to every plastic model company I have consulted with - never listen to modelers. 🙂

  8. A beautiful Aunt Ju, Robert @bsc4849
    The paint and weathering looks very relistic.

  9. Very nice, even if there was filling, it does not show! @bsc4849

  10. Superb Tante Ju!

  11. Well done, Robert! I'm glad you were able to track down a kit.

  12. Excellent model, Robert! I reluctantly sold one of those last summer as part of the downsizing/streamlining process.

  13. Awasome work. As an ex para-trooper I wanted to ask where you got the figures .
    Thanks for showing.

  14. Magnificent and well found! Tom mentioned the Revell Catalina and I managed to track it down and build it. It's one of my favourites. 1/72 doesn't do these kits justice.

  15. Looks great! I love the tri-motor aircraft - unique look.

  16. Very nice - one of my favorites!
