    C-124 lift

    Thank you guys, I appreciate very much your attention. I already have (in paper) this C-124 book. Believe me, for a good (or at least acceptable) representation of the lift "in plastic", even in 1/72 scale, the photos/drawings of the lift mechanism need to be more detailed. It would be ideal the "erection and maintenance instructions" of the C-124 (just as there are the "erection and maintenance" manuals of the B-17, C-47, etc.), at least showing the part relating to the lift.
  2. Yes, but it would be nice a new 1/72 scale tooling (the original was 1/76).

    C-124 lift

    Does anyone have (schematic) pictures / drawings showing how the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II belly lift works? I have an Airmodel kit of this plane, and I would like to build it with the lift lowered (so the cables / rails / chains / mechanisms / whatever that moves the lift will be visible). It would be very pretense to want to build the elevator actually having movement, in 1/72 scale, but if I can ... . Searching on Google, I found some relevant information, but I need more images (for modeling purposes, showing the visible details, including the parts inside the fuselage). Please, can anyone help me?
  5. This could come back, in 1/72...
  6. Very nice, congratulations! The cut out step in the right inboard flap is a charm.
  7. Yes, now that you mentioned it, it looks like the BV 142 from Mach 2. The only other manufacturer of 1/72 BV 142 is Airmodel, but it is a vaccum-forming kit.
  8. I like movable parts. All my models have spinning propellers and movable gun turrets (obviously, those which are not jets ). When possible, I install rotating wheels and movable rudders. I do not mind retractable undercarriages and folding wings, (also) because I have no skills to assemble them so they work "forever", without breaking. So I glue them "hard" without movement. Old kits (and some new ones) have movable control surfaces, but the gap between the wing and said surfaces is too big and unrealistic, so I do not care about them either. Nowadays I glue them in place, without the gap.
