    time for another build here on the greatest forum of the world, I went through my stash and found this old Monogram AC-47 Gunship I had this kit for about 12 years. Nothing unusual about the kit nothing more then the standard monogram C-47 only thing different is the parts that make up the AC-47 Gunship. A great kit so here is the intro of the build I started on the flight deck and cockpit details they will be painted next before I proceed any further. Here it is fellas.

    Should be a good one Boats. Always fancied doing their 'standard' C-47 kit as a RAF Dakota.

    Ahoy guys
    Thanks Fellas for all of your replies, as to the first update build report I went ahead and painted the interior of the flight deck and cockpit details using Chromate green washed down with black wash. all of the work wont be seen once the fuselage is joined together a shame but its there. The 7.62 mini guns are installed along with the blast blankets a lot of work on the fuselage before I proceed on the wings the windows will be added last after the complete assembly is done here is the build update of the dragon ship.

    Ahoy Fellow modelers
    The build update for the day is the joining of the fuselage, Before the fuselage was joined together I went bck and done some touch up here and there. Once it was done I joined the fuselage together. The horizontal stabilizers were joined as well, I went ahead and done some sanding before I applied the filler then I applied the same. now letting the fuselage assembly dry over night then I will go back and wet sand the filler. The wings will follow next here is the update build report thank fellas for all of your wonderful replies.
