  1. Ready for inspection is my 1:72 Italeri Dakota Mk.III, this is the first time I have built a larger aircraft, and I hope it will give me confidence to tackle the Halifax and Lancaster which are currently tucked up in my stash. So to the build, the kit went together pretty well, the fuselage halves are a bit of a pain to line up, but otherwise the kit required only a little amount of filler (which is always a bonus). The underside is brush painted, and the olive drab from a trusty rattle can (thanks to my lovely other half!). I should say I got an airbrush for my birthday and am growing in confidence with it, so hopefully my next build will be painted that way. Anyway back to the Dak, the decals caused me to sweat a little (and have a few beers!), but with the help of micro set, they soon were in place. I'm pretty happy with my first 'big' build, and more importantly I have discovered new respect, and love for the handsome looking aircraft. Thanks, Michelle.

  3. On a recent trip to one of my local model/toy shops, I came across Italeri 's 1:72 Dakota Mk.III. I had recently watched a programme about the RAF's role during D day, so was instantly drawn to this kit. I have to admit however, that I had never been that keen on the Dakota. That was until, I had the luck of witnessing one display at Abingdon airshow with my family. Having seen the aircraft in action, I was very impressed, and realised it deserved a lot of respect. So, wanting to build a slightly larger aircraft (in prep for the Lancaster and Halifax in my stash) I am about to begin the Dakota. On opening the box I was greeted by a very impressive decal sheet (the box doesn't lie....it is pretty super!) There are 3 grey plastic sprues, all with a lot of detailing, and a small clear sprue. There seems to be minimal flash and it all looks pretty good (if rather big!😬). I am planning to use the paint scheme of 233 squadron of the RAF, which was based in Swindon between 1944/1945. I am a brush painter, the body of this aircraft is rather large however, so I will be relying on the trusty rattle can to get me through. So here goes, my first BIG build!!!
  4. HpH displayed a 1/32nd Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota/Skytrain resin kit prototype in a model show at Bratislava (SK). Pictures? To be followed. Source: http://www.network54.com/Forum/149674/message/1450913241/Its+true V.P.
  5. Howdy all, TCA DC-3 decals now available to order from the website:
  6. C-47 as used by Pionair Air Charters, pics by Graeme H. This aircraft is now retired to The Ashburton Aviation Museum in New Zealand.
  7. Douglas DC-3, Trans World Airline. 1:144 Roden. This aircraft needs no introduction! It is the new Roden kit in 1:144 and a lovely little kit it is too. No issues with construction, it fits together beautifully. The decals are a big improvement over previous Roden offerings, but still need to be handled carefully. Finish is Alclad with Citadel silver for the control surfaces. We could do with a few aftermarket decal sheets for this one, I'll certainly build more, it is a great little kit and a huge improvement over the Minicraft offering. It isn't very big at all, with the modellers standard reference point, a jar of Tamiya paint; And finally, the 'with something else' picture. It could only be the Fly Models DC-9-10 with Draw Decals TWA markings. Thanks for looking, John
  8. Combat Models is to release in 2015 a 1/32nd Douglas C-47/DC-3 Skytrain/Dakota vacuform kit Source: http://combatmodels.us/ V.P.
  9. This Dakota is actually KP208, a C-47B built in 1946, this was one of the last two to serve with the RAF in 1970. It had been on display at the Airborne Forces Museum at Browning Barracks in Aldershot, Hampshire until the museum closed in December 2007. It is now at Merville Barracks in Colchester. KP208 represents KG374, a D-Day veteran that was shot down during Operation Market Garden at Arnhem on September 19, 1944. The pilot, Flt Lt David Lord, won a posthumous Victoria Cross - KG374 was hit twice by anti-aircraft fire with one engine on fire. Lord managed to drop most of his supplies on the drop run, but two containers remained. Despite the damage to his aircraft, Lord made a second run before ordering his crew to bale out. A few seconds later the Dakota crashed before Lord could escape. The Dakota fund is currently trying to fully restore this aircraft, if anyone feels they can help pls contact me for details. many thanks to Ruari for these pictures. Exterior Shots;
  10. Greetings all, Does anyone know what type of propellers where used on the 'original' civil DC-3's equipped with Wright Cyclone R-1820 engines? Although I'm sure they are not correct, however to my eyes, the prop and spinner that comes with the 1/72 Matchbox Lysander look quite similar. I have posted a separate 'wants' post for a spare prop here if anyone has one - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234966944-matchbox-172-lysander-prop-spinner-any-condition/ Failing that, does anyone know of any aftermarket props that are available in 1/72 scale. Cheers and thanks for looking.. Dave.
  11. SAS Dakotas in Malaya and Borneo.

    Hello! I'm hoping this is the correct place for this post because there isn't a section that I thought worked better but never mind. I am building Airfix's C-47 as a present for my great uncle who jumped out of them during his time serving in the SAS in Malaya and Borneo but I need some help! I have no idea as to what paint scheme the dakotas were in when operated by the SAS during the conflicts in Malaya and Borneo, would anybody on here happen to know? I've done lots of searching in books and on the internet but to no avail. Thank you very much, Ben.

  13. Swedish neutrality DC-3

    During the WWII the Swedish airline ABA continued its international flights with planes painted in striking orange.Björn Bäcklund has built, rescribed, slightly modified, cut his own masks and used a lot of orange color on a Monogram DC-3: The orange color and Swedish markings didn't keep the plane from being shot down in 1943. Björn presents the build here: http://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/148-aba-douglas-dc-3-gladan/ Lars Befring for IPMS-Stockholm
  14. Hi everyone, here are some shots from the excellent Lyon Air Museum in Orange County. It's a great collection of classic aircraft, military vehicles and classic cars, and they all work!

    Latest issue from Oldmodels Decals: Southern DC3 in 48, 72, 144 and 200th scale Available through my website www.oldmodelsdecals.com John
  16. Last completed build of 2012. Kit picked up at Telford and decals from TwoSix Decals. Cambrian DC-3s bring back fond memories of the early 60s at Lulsgate Airport (now Bristol International). The decals are aimed at the Minicraft kit and needed some adaptation and use of paint, particularly around the nose. First build of a resin and white metal kit. DC-3 C by jonbru0903, on Flickr DC-3 D by jonbru0903, on Flickr DC-3 B by jonbru0903, on Flickr DC-3 F by jonbru0903, on Flickr DC-3 G by jonbru0903, on Flickr Thoroughly enjoyed the build. Forgot to sand down the cargo door hinges, never mind.
  17. This is a turbo prop conversion to the DC-3 by Basler. This heavily modified aircraft is used by a company Spectrem for geological research and electromagnetic prospecting. Pics thanks to Graeme H
