Hobby Craft DHC-3 Otter

With hand shake in full mode the undercarriage legs were impossible to fit and keep still. So after a lot of thought I used those parts as templates on small sprue.

Hey Pat - that's not a rally car ;)

I've been wanting to build an Otter for some time.  Looks good.

Thanks,

John

Hey!

   "Da Plane ,"Boss" Da Plane" I have this kit in so many forms. I love the Otter since I both flew them and rode as a passenger in them. Super Practical and I might add, A Handsome Bird doing it's job!

    And "Shaker" event aside, looks darned good to me!!

Very nice, Pat.  The Canadians know how to paint an airplane.
