1/72 Revell DHC-6 Twin Otter 100 Aeralpi

Recommended Posts

This is the italian side of De Havilland Canada.

Aeralpi was a regional airline operating in Italy in the 60s.

The kit is the Revell 1/72, reboxed Matchbox plastic, with all the issues of that edition, and many signes of the time.

I will build as in the following picture taken at Cremona in those years.

The kit is already started, but not too much: this is where I am now.

And here is how I came to this point.

After correcting some kit errors, adding windows, interiors, landing lights and some rescribing, from here on it's all new.

Hope you enjoy.

Nice work Euge, I have a couple of these in the stash. So are these mods required for all Twin Otters?

Thank you Ray for your comment.

Some mods are required, just to improve the kit and correct the parts, other are specific for this variant.

The series 100s with short nose delivered to Aeralpi were early version. (I-FALO: s/n 46) with the windows arrangement you have seen and without emergency exits and reinforcing plates on the fuselage where it meets the propeller plane.

So, as always with civil aircraft, you have to look for the specific type you are going to build. Please, feel free to ask, if I can help you.

Regards

Euge
