CD144014 - 1/144 C-124 Globemaster

Recommended Posts

Wow!  Just beautiful! I may have to buy another kit or two!  Kursad, Roden needs to pay you a commission for single highhandedly boosting kit sales.  Three cheers for Kursad!

I never thought I’d be so excited about such a small kit!  I’m mostly a 1/32 builder, but this is a game changer.

This will be one of the August releases, to be released after I come back from my vacation in London.

Awesome!   One of those looks like the bird from Strategic Air Command when they load up and move the entire wing to Yokota. 

 

I was sure one of you guys would catch that - the aircraft on the sheet is indeed 49-247; one of the C-124 featured in the "moving the wing" scene in the movie. It was probably the only reliable color reference for the 3rd SSS scheme.

 

References from this period were hard to come by - I was able to design the 1st SSS badge thanks to the help of a photo of a rare unit badge from the period.

And will be the first one I build!   Great sheet sir.

Gonna hit any of the U.K. aviation museums while there?

If so, I highly recommend the RAF Museum in Hendon... It's a short "tube" ride from London proper, then a short stroll from the station.  The museum is free, and Hannants hobby shop is about two blocks up the road from there. Allow most of a full day... there's a lot to see..!

Hendon was awesome!  Duxford is also an easy train ride from London.  London, I think, might be my favorite city.

At the very least I will try to visit the IWM. As for others, I am not sure how it will work out - I might try to dump the wife and kids  encourage my family to spend time at a place like Harrod's and go to Hendon.

Cool, love the windows.

 

I've just returned from Duxford myself, I went to see the Dakotas take off to Normandy.

I love going there, even if there is no airshow on. I find the American Air Museum inside Duxford quite interesting. Not as much for taking pictures of the aircraft as they are so close together, but it is great to get so close to aircraft like an F-111E, A B-52D, an SR-71...

You can walk around, get to appreciate how big a B-52D tip tank is next to yourself, etc.

 

Cheers, Stefan.
