    Minicraft 1/144 DC-6B Conversion to Canadair North Star C5

    Dutch, the North Star was a very unique beast. Built by Canadair, it was a hybrid of a few different aircraft. here is a description of the changes from Wikipedia: More than just an engine swap, the North Star had the Douglas DC-6 nose, landing gear and fuselage shortened by 80 in (2 metres), DC-4 empennage, rear fuselage, flaps and wing tips, C-54 middle fuselage sections, wing centre- and outer-wing panels, cabin pressurisation, a standardised cockpit layout and a different electrical system. To do a proper North Star, you need a DC-4 and DC-6 model with the merlins, or in your case for the C-5, just a DC-4 and DC-6 kit. Sean

    U S Army Canadair Mk5?

    From what I can gather it was operated by Flight systems as a drone and shot down over White Sands. Must have been for an army project, hence the titles. I also believe the tail was either orange or day-glo and that is just colour shift. Sean

    F-82 Twin Mustang

    I really wish I had bookmarked that site. It was a close up of a bunch of radar pod artwork. It would have been a great resource for this sheet...now I have no idea where it was. Sean

    F-82 Twin Mustang

    by the way...just found a source on shapeways for the radar pod and flame dampener exhaust so you can do a "G" out of any kit you have!! https://n/product/DWD6RJB2S/f-82g-twin-mustang-exhaust-1-48?optionId=64940431 Sean

    F-82 Twin Mustang

    depending on how much space you have on the sheet, Betty Jo, Old 97 and at least one of the cool Alaska birds are needed After that, some cool night fighters with nose art is all you need to round out the sheet. Sean

    Printscale did a set a few years ago but it was mostly "G" models and they can be a little hard to find. Sean

    F-82 Twin Mustang

    Actually, turns out I have the F-82E, not the B, but other than minor items all aircraft are basically the same. Still..we Def need decals!! Sean

    F-82 Twin Mustang

    YES PLEASE!!! I have two of the B model kits that have no decals and I can't find any anywhere. A couple of options would be great. The kit sucks but I am sure people have them in the stash and would buy decent decals if they were available. Sean
