Hi, Douglas O2M (or O38) is one of long series of early Douglas light bomber and observation airplanes. O2MC was produced in some variants - O2MC, O2MC2,..., O2MC6 and O2MC10. Main difference was in different engines. The variant O2MC2 is identical wih US Army variant O38B. O2MC's were export versions to China (and also produced there). This is a machine from a times of Potez XXV, Breguet 19, Polikarpov R5 or Hawker Hart and based on similar basic concepts. Model is a resin kit by Arpol (72045 Douglas O38A/B), almost OOB (what I did extra? - for example I made a rotable prop, what I do always in kits, even with resin engines). The original kit contains only US decals, so I used scheme from this profile (the middle one): BTW - if anybody can translate what is wiritten in Chineese about this machine on this chart, please. It will be appreciated very much Here she is: The Ardpol kit has very detailed inside, nice surface and perfect quality of parts. The weakest part is instruction which does not show for example the exact positions of bomb racks nor how exactly the small details provided in kit should be arranged in cockpit. Decals (Chineese national insignia) I took from a Blue Rider I16 set, numbers from drawer. This is my first finished in 2017 and first finished since end of August. I started it in July, but then in Autumn was too busy with other things to finished. I came back to it after Christmas. The Autumn break in modelling was also perhaps due to making Me 321 and Me 323 in summer holidays. Apparently I needed some break afterward...). And whole mine China '37-39 shelf (Polikarpov I153, Vultee V11, Dewoitine D 501, Northrop Gamma 2e and Douglas O2MC2) Thank you for watching Comments welcome Best regards and all the best in whole new 2017 for all!
