    Here is a build I done about 2 years ago. This kit is kosher not scratch. Here is a Re- release of Monograms 1977 C-47 Skytraine same kit as the buzzBuggy thier first release just different decal sheet. The aircraft represents the Berlin airlift in 1949, Built straight from the kit the only modification i made is the treatment of the finish. I covered her in aluminum foil toned down with acetone and the panels were masked off.

    Agreed. Never tried foil as it looks kinda scary to do.

    That looks fantastic! I have one of the original issues with the Shep Paine booklet on my shelf just waiting for the trash haulers group build.
