Airfix Douglas Dakota - 34 Squadron RAAF**Finished**


Recommended Posts

I have started my next build, the new tool C-47 from Airfix. I have a self-imposed deadline of 10 Nov so this will be a quick one I hope. 

 

Decals are from the DK sheet from my last C-47 build and a simple SWPTO colour scheme of over Olive Drab over grey.

 

The build has progressed rapidly over the last couple of days and I hope to share some pictures soon.

 

Box shot as per last entry...

Thanks Cliff, day 3 of the build and it is progressing nicely.

 

Lots of parts in the interior

Which go together nicely

Some paint goes on

In my haste, I think something got misaligned so some persuasion required to get the fuselage together

Persuasion removed and some seams puttied

and finally on with the engine assembly

I must say the kit is nicely engineered, if I slowed down a little no doubt I would get a better fit. I am sure it will look OK when finished.

 

Pictured with a few other distractions to keep thing interesting

Great looking model Ray, nice work on drilling out the exhaust. I also like the group shot, models seem to look even better when they are displayed as part of a themed collection like that.

The Convair build is on the shelf of doom at the moment Martin ( @RidgeRunner ), I had some major problems with paint and it is in the process of being stripped back.

 

I have a build thread here:

 

I have not updated it in a while
