Hello all

I have been suffering from a lack of mojo for a while now, and I needed to try and break it, so I decided to do something fairly simple and mostly out of the box.

I decided to go for an old favourite, the KC-97, but the USAF SIG is doing a transport theme for Telford this year so I converted the excellent Academy 172nd scale KC-97G to the YC-97A.

Another reason for this one is an interest in the Berlin airlift, and this is the only member of the C-97 family that took part, flying 27 round trips in May 1949.

 

Hope you like this one.

Nicely done.  Proof that some military Strat's had interesting paint schemes.

Definitely a stunner there. The real plane is a looker, the model of it no less - but then you had to choose those markings - which are absolutely terrific! I had no idea a C-97 took part in the airlift. Great way to learn..!
