After the Ju52 left my dad´s factory, the free space is already occupied again by the next big Revell kit.

my dad didn´t do much detailing of the interior, as mentioned, you don´t see it afterwards

only some drybrushing, masking tape for the seatbelts, good enough

air intakes mounted, luckily the Revell kit includes both types

the windscreen is no good fit, therefore my dad cut away the sidewindows and used some clear plastic to display them open, he also adds the edge struts with plastic pieces

Nice Idea on the windscreen.

She's a big bird.

The raised panel lines present some challenges to construction, but IMHO they look more realistic than recessed panel lines on a Dakota anyway.

 

The Monogram C-47 shapes are good. I have one myself; just in search of the right paint scheme. Want to do a Pacific Theater one. Also considered a fresh-off-the-line bird with the red insignia surrounds and a yellow serial number on the tail...

regarding the panel lines you are right, saw rescribed models and they didn´t look so good

 

good idea with the PTO one, because you see mostly ETO/D-Day schemes in 1/48 I convinced my dad to do a PTO one too

due to the not so good wing to fuselage fit my dad decided to join them already instead of in the end as planned initially

some filling/sanding sessions ahead
