Canadair Northstar - Conversions available?


Recommended Posts

Are there any conversions that would allow turning a DC-4 into a Canadair Northstar?

Thanks all,

Belcher Bits used to do such a conversion, unfortunately, it's sold out now.  They still offer the decal sheet though.  The conversion was based on a set from a company called Aircraft in Miniature, Hannants may be a source for the engines.

In 1/72, AIM72 / Aircraft in Miniature as suggested above plus Belcher Decals

In 1/144 BraZ do conversion engine nacelles and CanMilAir do decals

Is CanMil Air doing decals again?  Last time that I looked at his website (which was several years ago), he had gotten out of the decal market.

Canmilair decals are back, printed by Above&Below Graphics.  A short google search will reward.

IIRC Dave, didn't the Rareplanes 1/72 DC-4/C-54 vacform also come with the necessary parts to do the Northstar conversion?

It did indeed Mike, I'd forgotten about that one.

As Tony says above, there's a new website up with the decals on, but there's a note saying it's undergoing maintenance and updates and the webstore is currently closed.
