Put me down for a Roden 1/144 scale DC-3.  Nothing says "Between the Wars" like a DC-3.  Big Smile

Here is my first entry for the GB, a cross over with Steve's Lockheed build.

Rareplane's 1/72 Lockheed Vega as 'Winnie Mae' with Drawdecal decals. Vacforms are always fun, so let's see how it goes!

That vac-u-form kit is a real challenge I think, LA.  I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Thought I would go ahead and post an image of the kit I've entered for this GB.  It's the Roden 1/144 scale Douglas DC-3.  A tiny model, but it can be built into a nice representation of the real thing.  Of course, it just barely makes it into the GB requirements as TWA didn't start flying them until 1937.

About the kit.  I'll benefit from prior builds of the Roden kit in the C-47/DC-3 GB.  Appears the tiny parts are a bit tricky, especially the landing gear.  And the fuselage halves need to be watched as the pins don't line up (I haven't checked this personally).  Plus, the decals tend to shatter, so I wonder if spraying them with Decal Bonder might solve that probem.  We'll see.  Better make a scan of them before beginning.

It will be a couple of weeks before I can begin on this as I have other commitments to finish, but I'll stay active.

lostagain, I have a 6-rad I'd like to join with if markings from an unknown unit on training in 1937 are OK.

Here's the starter post for my Accurate Miniatures SBD-1.  The arrester hook is short shot right in the middle but that won't be an issue because I bought several extra AM SBD's when a seller was posting them at low prices from stocks that came after AM stopped production.
