1/32 - Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota/Skytrain resin kit by HpH - released

Recommended Posts

The C-47/DC-3 is scheduled for 2016. It will have complete interior like the Catalina, the price range will also be the same. "Same size, same price." as the owner of HpH said.

Profimodeller will do a 1/32 Jeep for the C-47 and maybe he will do an AC-47 conversion.

The pics I have made during my last visit at HpH in summer 2015.20150715_121836_zpsov2aqq0e.jpg20150715_121816_zpsynyf6dnf.jpg

(...) C-47/DC-3: also in a very early stage, release not before 2017. Jiri has planned to do this kit with a plain surface, that will be covered with Aluminium coloured PE sheets with positive rivets.

Here´s a test part. (...)

This painting is made by a Czech artist, who also did some box-arts for HpH. Maybe they will use it.

Oh wow! That surface detail is a work of art! I'd love a C-47 in 1/32. Now, how to get this one past the missus?? :hmmm:

Regards;

Steve

P.S. What's the fuselage in progress behind the C-47?

I did wonder as it looked like an Arado, but the scale threw me off...1/18th scale? Too big for 1/32 by the looks of it.

As the late and much-lamented John Clarke would have said, "Oh, my giddy aunt!". I can see a 1:32 Ansett-MAL C-47 in my future ...

If someone does a BT-67 conversion for this, my wallet is going to take a HAMMERING.

Nice to see all those rivets! Just like the real thing! Not sure about those tyres, sure they are right but never seen those before.I take it the rudder is yet to be done as the trailing edge doesn't seem right.

 

But, alas, definitely NOT my scale.

Oh Gawd - civil and military, passenger door on either side. This is going to get expensive ... more so if they include a Cyclone option!

I'm sure I won't be able to afford one, but if I could (and to be contrary) I'd have to buy two: one to build and one to not build but get out of its box and look at every so often.

 

Nominee for Kit of the Year?

The rudder comes seperate, this is just part of the mould.
