  3. I'm joining in with this Airfix's Sea King HC4. A proper 'Junglie'. It's a nice kit with 5 sprues of crisply moulded grey plastic. Though there is is a lack of rivets compared to older Sea Kings. Also a single but fairly busy clear sprue. A little different from my recent Seafires with a canopy and a couple of other small parts. Usual modern style Airfix instructions. A number of options in the box, the biggest being the option of a folded tail and folded rotors. Comprehensive t
  4. I've noticed several C-46 Commando's this week show up, so thought I'd share mine. I finished it a few years back, and it's still one of my favourites. The Williams Bros kit I felt needed a bit of work. Here's some of the mods I did: -Scratch built engine mounts -Scratch built open cowl flaps -Scratch built exhausts, all the way to the back of the radial engine -Thinned out and opened up cooling holes in the cowlings -Scratch built ignition harness for Quickboost upgraded engines -Propellers were shortened Marauder propellers -Scratch built wheel wells- these were non existent -Scratc
  5. First the obligatory picture of the boxes I think we all know what the insides look like! I haven't yet decided what aircraft to build other than a MK 4 in delivery condition with the white lettering. I was thinking of doing either a Pakistan aircraft with the Exocets (Old bobcat kit of the super puma has them I can rob) or an Indian navy one both decals on the way to me if eBay is to be believed. If not as you can see I have 2 set of C Scale conversion for the Mk 4 and decals for 8 different aircraft so may do a winter one or SFOR aircraft Anyway here we go....... Cockpits can be done with
  6. Hi, Perhaps the biggest secondliner so far on mine shelves: Curtiss C-46 Commando. Model is made from Williams Brothers kit. Markings (nose arts are hand painted) are presenting machine which survived the war, was used in Pacific area and is now on display in Pima museum in US. I was searching for some interesting markings and was not successfull with this some years ago, when I was making this model. Just from curiosity I started to search in web yesterday and found very interesting set of photos of C46 from Burma, 1944-45, with yellow strip going across all windows, proba
  7. Hi I've just found interesting set of photos with Curtiss C-46 Commando belonging to 4th Combat Cargo Group of USAAF in Burma during WWII. https://www.flickr.com/photos/tresijas/sets/72157630818092194/ You may find eleven serials of C46 serving there: http://www.comcar.org/4th_ComCar/14th_CCS_so317.htm Any idea how to link nose arts with serials? Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
  8. In 1944, 3 British Commando's decided that they had had enough of bimbling round Europe on foot. Luckily they came across an M16 with the keys left in & engine running. Being Churchill's best they did what they did best & liberated the vehicle. On finding a garage they qued the music & modified the van, adding roof bars, PSP planking & a spot light. The large white stars didn't fit in with their low key approach so some black paint was applied. This is my first Amour build (mostly build aircraft). I really enjoyed it. Spray painted Humbrol 30 from a rattle can, It was weath

  10. C-46ECM JASDF Electronic Warning Training Aircraft PLATZ 1:144 The design for the Curtiss C-46 Commando was originally intended for the civil airliner industry, however its capability for high altitude flight, with pressurised cabin and freight space, plus the large load carrying ability it was soon identified as ideal for the military needs of transporting troops and logistics. The design of the C-46 was not trouble free and was there were constant series of modifications and version changes in order to try and overcome some of the major deficiencies. One such pr
