1/144 Minicraft DC-3 - Air Rhodesia


Recommended Posts

Thanks Mitchem

Have you got any photos showing the props of the Air Rhodesia DC-3 (or are they C-47s as they have the large loading doors?) - I can't make up my mind what colour they are, they look grey/silver to me

Cheers

I'm afraid I don't have any photos, but I'd go with the grey / silver.

Some photos available on the Internet :

and a few on Rob Norton's site :

No pressure, but I'm counting on you getting it right as I have a 1/72 DC-3 in the loft waiting to come downstairs.

Appliance white top and alclad polished aluminium u/s and wings done - waiting for white to dry before taking pic - Still not found white letters this may be difficult to finish - I emailed twosix decals earlier this week, to see if they can scale their 1/72 declas to 1/144 but no reply as yet

Both Modelart & Modeldecal do generic sheets of white lettering. They state they are 1/72, but can obviously be used on other scales depending on the size of the aircraft. There may be something you can use on these? ;

That looks positivley Fab Wayne... love the polished metal! And meh who notices a slight differentiation on a door!

And Mitch you can always do one in 1:72 here and.... I am sure you could do something else for the airliner GB next year!

Resistance is futile!

I think that looks gorgeous - the c/s seems to suit the Dk quite well

(btw - do you want the Pan Am decals that came with the kit?
