Hi, After my first jump from a Dakota, I became really keen to build a couple. Once I found out that there are kit-world decals for "Drag 'em Oot", it was pretty clear that the 4x Phantom build for this GB was going to experience some delays. At the IPMS Belgium National Convention, I found a couple of kits. Looking at Scalemates, I see that the 1/100 scale Nitto C-47 dates from 1974 and that it has been re-released by Entex and Doyusha. I see that the Italeri C-47 dates from 1979 and has been re-released by a host of other manufacturers. It looks really great in the box. I plan to make these quick, simple builds. The interiors are going to be kept really simple. My impression of "Drag 'em oot" was that the entire interior was OD. The Italeri one is going to be "Drag 'em oot" and the Nitto one will be in the Eastern Airlines decals that you see below the boxes. The Nitto kit also has the option of adding ski's to the landing gear. The box I bought at the Nats includes 2 kits (one very much started). I'll probably build that one as one of those colourful USN Antartic Research Dakota's. My inspiration for the builds. There is also a video on YouTube about our jump. I'm not in it as I was on "Chalk 6" and this was filmed on "Chalk 5"'s jump. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ye9RwwIT4M&t=405s Cheers, Stefan.
Hi, Kits-World decal set 172206 "D-Day commemorative schemes nose-art Set 2" has decals for a C-47 named " Southern Cross" with a big T9 code. So far, I have been unable to find out which squadron (TCS) had the T9 code. The others on the sheet were easy to find "Tico Belle" code Z8 was from the 84th TCS and "Placid Lassie" code ID was from the 74th TCS . Does anyone know which TCS had the T9 code? Cheers, Stefan.
