  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. 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 -Scratch built tail wheel section (I used sanded down spitfire wheels for the tail wheel) -Main wheels were resin casts of the Valom Albermarle wheels, home made -Lights had bulbs put in place -Side windows were reverse mounted, then sanded to match fuselage- it was very hard to then have to drill holes in each one for the machine guns to mount through -Vac formed canopy -Scratch built cockpit interior -Scratch built aerials and antennas all over the place. -Full rescribe -Homemade decals. I'm sure there was more I did to it, but that gives you an idea to the work put into it. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Alan
  3. I found out recently that Buffalo Airways' C-46 C-GTXW crashed on Sept 25 2015. She is said to be a write off. Here's the accident report. http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20150925-0 Very sad for me because I remember this plane well when she worked for Air Manitoba as "Ancient Lady" until the late '90s along with a few others, DC-3s and HS-748s. I saw her a lot back then thundering low over Winnipeg. I looked on googlemaps at Deline NWT and it looks like a C-46 shape minus wings parked off the runway next to a lodge a short distance from the runway, just very blurry since it's rural.
  4. 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, probably with red nose and many different nose arts. I made a post about in in WWII forum - the llink is there. Perhaps one day I will re-paint mine C46 to those markings. I am so impressed about it... So far - she looks like this: Comments welcome Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
