Well, around 550 is expected by "a large aviation modeling" shop in the Netherlands.....

550?  Humm, not tempting at all.

Hopefully I was not wrong about this obvious detail that nobody seems to pay attention to...

 

The separate columns of the windshield windows are too wide. The side windows are too big even if they are just the frames.

 

Please take a look at all the photos shown in this topic. In addition, the separate column right at the corner between the outer windshield window and the side window is too wide.

 

Correct me if I am wrong, please...

I don't know...take a look at the close up of the front of that's All Brother on pg 5. Corner brace looks pretty wide. Now perhaps the civilian versions look a little different or maybe it's the NMF playing games with the eye.

By the way, That's All Brother got a new paint job this week and man does she look purdy. I can't wait to cross paths with her someday!

Very, very not tempting at all. Extremely untemped. 

 

I'd rather buy 5 Tamiya kits, or 20 Revell kits.

If I could build a Gooney in EAL colors, I couldn't keep saying: But I have no room.

After pilot training with the RCAF I cut my teeth flying the venerable C-47 and accumulated over 2000 hours on it in three years before moving on to the C-130. For those interested, here are three different variants of port side doors - the standard cargo door, the cargo door with the para door insert in the forward door modified to provide swing down passenger steps and a straight passenger entrance (no cargo door).

I would love to have one and I would love to build it, but neither my wallet nor my skills allow for any such thoughts...

Thank for the info. WOW! 2000 hours in a Gooney. Best I ever managed was as a passenger and as I remember, a  bit on the noisy side.

Closest I ever got was my mail, which was delivered by a DC-3 for 16 years when I lived on Catalina Island.

Be still my heart! They have yet to paint her name back on, but boy does That's All Brother look a might purdy.

Well, there's a DC-3 with actual Wrights. A real "Early Bird" and a real DC-3, not a wartime C-47 convert.

But I also can't take my eyes off that B.247 and what looks like the back end of a Northrop Gamma. Three genuine classics right there, folks. Wow!

Good Lord!  This would be 2 feet by 3 feet in 1/32 scale! 

 

I thought the Felixstowe from WNW was big!
