  1. Working on a Platz 1/144 C-46 and need to replicate an antenna. It's above the cockpit and looks almost like a set of bicycle handlebars. Best case, I can find something similar that will work. Worst case I need better photos that I can use to scratch a new one. Any help IDing the antenna or finding better photos (top view?) would be tremendous.
  2. Hello all, This has been a marathon build, whilst I have enjoyed the build, I am pleased to call it done present it to you all for your comments.... The kit is the old Heller kit. With a bit of TLC it builds into a nice model. No major issues but it needs nose weight, I'd prefer a better wing/fuselage joint and the main gear is very fiddly and hard to get equal on both sides. I have added a fair amount of my own detail, opened the crew door, scratch built the crew door, opened up the water tanks, scratch built the internal tanks, water chute doors/actuators, flame retardant tank (can't be seen!), seat belts, throttle levers, added landing lights in the wings and some plumbing in the main gear bays. Oh and opened out and added the dome windows.... The version I have built is Buffalo Airways tanker 282, as seen on Ice Pilots. As it spent some time near my home in South Wales it was a plane I had to build. Luckily a fellow club member is very good at creating decals so I was able to have a go at this version. The aircraft is quite rivet heavy, as is the kit. During construction a lot of rivets were lost. These have been replaced using Archers Rivets. They went on really well, if you follow the instructions, ask me how I know!! The masking was a challenge but I'm very happy with how it turned out.... WIP is here. Thanks for looking I hope you enjoy...
