DC-3

This is the 1/90 Revell kit.  I used clear styrene for the windows, Archer rivets for those lost from sanding, opened the landing lights, gear linkage, inlets and exhaust and used Vintage Flyer decals.  Thanks for letting me share.

Really good job, she looks great! I remember riding in one of these from Parsons Kansas to Kansas City many years ago. I was third window back on the right watching the engine as rivets spun and oil came out of most openings. Quite the shaker as I remember, at least compared to today's jets!

Hi,

That looks super.  The Natural Metal paint job came out great.

Nice finish.  I would like the photos more if there were shot at a longer focal length, they do not showcase the good shape of that model as well as they might.

Beautiful work Banshee Bow Down That's a nice old kit. Today I saw a DC3 with turboprops on a video. What a great modification to what is still a GREAT aircraft.

Completing a kit is like cutting the head off a Hydra. Two more replace it in the stash.

Nice!

I didn't even know Revell made a 1:90 scale DC-3. Is that a new kit, or a really old one?

Isn't it this one? The 1955 kit with a new box and decals?

Yes, that is the box it came in.  I got it at a vendor at a model show.  I wanted to use it to test the Archer rivet decals.

I'll have to watch for it at shows and auctions.  Never built that kit. I value DC-3 kits that are not C-47s with airline decals.

Banshee,

The DC-3 came out great!  A little tender loving care and this simple model can be turned into a work of art.

Don> Did you get rid of the one I sent you last November?  Smile

Interesting, very close to HO Scale. 1/90 would be the perfect scale for a near-background aircraft on a model railroad.

I didn't know about Santa Fe Skyway. BTW there's a D.C.-4 sort of Super Chief scheme by Vintage available as well...

i just don't have a place to put that model.

No, I have it in my queue.  Won't pass up a DC-3 kit!
