  1. Trumpeter is to re-release its 1/48th C-47 Skytrain kit in late June 2020 as Douglas DC-3 - ref. 05813 Source: http://www.trumpeter-china.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=181&l=en 3D render V.P.
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Airfix C-47 Dakota, built with the addition of Eduard photo etch, Airwaves Boarding ladder and Xtradecal markings for an aircraft of 89th TCS, 438th TCG, based at Greenham Common in August 1944. At that time the b/w D-Day stripes were already overpainted on the upper surfaces. I painted the model with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.

  4. I present my recently completed 1/144 scale Roden C-47, in the markings of the aircraft used by 335 squadron RNAF to transport the King of Norway, during the early 1960's. The model was built as part of the Nordic GB, but missed the deadline due to some last minute issues with the decals, which were rectified very promptly by Vingtor.. The full WIP can be seen here Having built several DC-3's in this scale before (both minicraft), I think the Roden offering has the edge, in terms of looks and accuracy. Wheel wells were fully detailed inte
  5. Having originally said I'd join this group build, it's about time I did! The Nordic theme is of great interest to me, and as an added bonus, my wife is half Norwegian! My chosen subject is the Roden 1/144 C-47. My plan is to model a Norwegian Air Force version using Vingtors splendid decal sheet 144-124 for the type. I have a soft spot for the C-47/DC-3 in 1/144 scale, having two completed, and a further three in the stash. The third to be built will join these two Minicraft offerings that I built a couple of years ago: So starting with the the kit. I thin
  6. Good evening. Here is my take on the beautiful C-47 sky train, specifically the "Camel Caravan to Berlin", a good story and based in Neubiberg, a stones throw away from where I live. The kit is Revell, 1/48, with various mods and a few table spoons of putty. Enjoy and thanks for looking. CF
  7. My entry will be Italeri's C-47 finished as an aircraft operated by Buffalo Airways using the Leading Edge decals.
  8. Good Day All, Finished my C-47 for the Group Build. Thought you would enjoy the pictures. All the Best! Don
  9. If things go well and I manage to land the days correctly, I´ll be able to visit the Big H in June, planning to buy a decal sheet with an Argentinian C-47A TC-34, plus the Dakota Mk.IV from Airfix. My question is, what version of the C-47 does the Dakota Mk.IV represent? Would it be the C-47D? And if so, were there any external differences between the C-47A and C-47D? I´m not familiar with cargo aircraft, my favourite planes tend to be Luftwaffe fighters. Thanks in advance!

  11. Air National Guard C-47s 1:72 Iliad Designs Iliad Designs is a producer of decals, colour charts and books from Canada's capital city Ottawa. This sheet sees them continue their line of Air National Guard decals with a selection of C-47s from the early years of the ANG. Schemes for four aircraft are included, all of which are interesting in their own right. The aircraft in question are: C-47A 0-92079 of the Puerto Rico ANG; VC-47A 315568 'The Old Dominion' of the Virginia ANG; C-47A 315555 of the Nebraska National Guard; and C-47
  12. Hello! Here are several photos of the construction and final result of the latest model to come out of my workbench. The airframe is painted in order to represent a C-47 in service with the Portuguese Air Force detachment on Lajes airfield, Terceira Island, Azores. The base was built by the RAF in 1943, as an effort to close the azorean gap which allowed german U-boats to run havoc amongst allied vessels. In 1945 it was passed on to the Portuguese forces, and since 1945/6 it has served as an American base. This scheme was not normalised and existed during 1952 only on this C-4
  13. Dear Fellow Modellers Here is the Airfix 1/72 C-47 Skytrain in the guise of an RAF Dakota IV from the period of the Berlin Airlift. I used the Eduard photo etch, quickboost resin exhausts and resin P&W engines. Panel lines were partly filled then sanded, sprayed with primer and the process repeated several times. Then I carried out ‘rivetting’. The U-shaped aerial had to be moved to behind astrodome and Gee aerial fitted. I used the Xtradecal decals to represent the aircraft of 46 Squadron normally based at Oakington in 1948. The DC-3 ‘sleeper’ was origi
  14. Here is the Airfix 1/72 C-47 when based at Sembach with the 66th TRW. It is not an easy build due to my mistakes (both the build and decals) and some tight tolerances but will have a go at another and avoid the pitfalls. The decals came from XVTonker on here, who produced some decals for USAFE C-47, Furball Decals for the stars and bars and a Scalemaster sheet for the USAF titles. The metal finish was done with Tamiya Aluminium spray can and various panels with Vallejo Metal Color. Robert
  15. Can anyone please tell me whether there is, apart from the transfer sheet, any difference between the A08014 C-47 Dakota/Skytrain and the A08015 Douglas Dakota Mk.IV kits? Ie is the plastic the same in both kits? Thanks in advance.
  16. Berlin Airlift C-47s 1:72 Iliad Designs It did not take too long after the end of WWII for things to turn sour between the former Allies of East and West. The first real test of the Cold War came in 1948 when the Soviet bloc decided to blockade the former German Capital of Berlin which despite being in the Soviet Zone of occupied Germany was administered jointly between the Soviets, The UK, France and the USA. Road, Rail & Canal access to West Berlin was closed off but not the Air Corridor. In what has been described as the biggest humanitarian airlift in history, air Crews from the
  17. RAAF ARDU C-47 Dakota Project INGARA 1:72 Red Roo Models What must be the longest serving transport in the history of the Royal Australian Air Force must be the venerable Douglas C-47. Even after its successors in the form of the Caribou & Hercules were on the scene the C-47 continued to serve with the RAAF's Aircraft Research & Development Unit (ARDU) based at Edinburgh in South Australia. It was finally retired in 1994. The last job of this venerable aircraft was to take part in project INGARA. Ingara is an aboriginal word which mean "long way" Between 1992 and 1994 C-47 A65-
  18. Hi, I'm calling this done. It's the new tool Airfix kit with Rocketeer decals (I didn't get on well with these). Thanks to Paul J for the blister window, though I have come to realise it should be tear drop shaped, please don't chastise me! Finished with Tamiya acrylics.

  22. Douglas AC-47 Spooky Roden 1:144 The rapid development of jet aircraft in the immediate post-war years seemed to promise the end of the use of piston-engined aircraft in combat. However, the local conflicts of the first decades of the second half of the 20th Century proved that it was too early to send the veterans into retirement. The war in Vietnam presented a number of unpleasant surprises to the US military command, one of which was the so-called "Ho Chi Minh Trail" - an extensive network of trails and small roads in southern Viet
  23. I have a couple of 1:144 aircraft that I would like to paint in Vietnam colours. I would like to know what the colours are for camouflaged F-4E Phantom and a C-47 Skytrain, are they the same colours? I normally use and like Vallejo Air but I need help with identifying the bottle numbers to get for the Vietnam cam of tans and greens. I am also interested to hear If there is a better acrylic paint, which can be easily obtained in UK and, if so, who supplies them. And finally, any recommendations on who retails acrylic paints, such as Vallejo etc. at the most economic prices? Thanks for any
  24. Here's Roden's new 1/144 C-47. I started building one to complete a theme and then thought it would be rude not to do another at the same time. Really liked the kit and feels that it captures the C-47 lines a bit better than the Minicraft version. Only additions were the home-made decals and the "towel-rail" antenna on the Air Force version. Rhodesian Air Force "7307" This plane ground looped at Rushinga in February 1975 following a brake failure on landing. The landing gear collapsed as a result and the port propeller sheared off and sliced into the fuselage, missing the crew by inche
