Thanks guys. I decided not only to construct the models but to give them life solutions with electric triks. Specially the TU 22 M has the half pieces lost. So it will be dead in "darkness" The owner of  second hand kit told it to me but I decided to buy it and give to the kit second life chance. I was very happy with the result when I calculated and scratched correct the pieces lost.

Where you inspired by that lonely rotting Dakota which is accompanied by the Caravelle at your airport of Thessaloniki..

I like the idea of getting it lighted and motorised, lovely build..

 

Cheers, Jan

Janneman36 I was officer ( Lt Colonell)C-47%20_03.JPG of Greek Air Force so every morning I was seen the C-47 492622  (2009). It was all "fresh" painted, because it is an anniversary aircraft. The Caravelle is in the Mikra airport (civil "Makedonia" airport of Thessaloniki).

Simply superb!  I'm glad to see that you bring life to a kit.  Can you tell me what motors you used?  Love it!  Here's what I did with a 1/144 Revell TU-95 Bear-D.  Click on picture.

Go to Hobbylink Japan, they sell Doyusha motors  to power their line of 1/100 scale planes, they work great and are usable up to 1/72 scale.  You can buy them individually for a few dollars.  I order 4 at a time.
