Bombardier DHC8-Q400.

F.toys 1:300th scale.


The Q400 was developed from the De Havilland Canada Dash 8 twin turboprop STOL airliner. (DHC is now Bombardier Aerospace).

Starting with the 100 series, the Dash 8 has progressively stretched fuselages through the 200, 300, and 400 models, although only the 400 remains in production.

Widely used, Q400's can be seen at airports around the world, in a wide variety of liveries. There is no 1:144 scale injection moulded kit of this aircraft, so I was pleased to recently stumble across this little 1:300 model on my travels. Effectively it is half the size that it would be in 1:144 scale.

It is click together and pre-painted, with just a few decals to apply, but the detail is very fine and I think it is a cracking little model. It seems like a bit of a cheat, as I have hardly had to do much to build it and nothing to paint it, but it is unusual so I hope you like it.







And for an idea of how small it is;


And the generic box it came in. The CRJ's look nice!


Thanks for looking,
