Painted the interior, and then of course, found a picture showing an all-black interior...
Coming together fairly nicely. Plastic is very thin. Just a bit of filler here and there...
Next up is the day-glo panels on the wingtips, nose, and rear fuselage.

Day-Glo is a @$!# to paint and get a nice even coat..

More or less happy with the day-glo. Now I need to mask that for the green.
One cowling complete. Had the other finished too, until I dropped it on the floor. More putty-sand-repeat...

Arrgh! Had the rotating beacon (a small clear piece) in my hand trying to clean off the flash and 'ping'. Not even a hint of a sound when or where it landed.
Got the Model Master Dark Green on. Just need a touch up here and there.

A bit of clear sprue van easily replace it ...

Had the same idea Erik, replaced the beacon with some sprue.
Next up - need to mask for the black de-ice boots.

Thanks Chris!
Masked and sprayed the leading edge anti-ice boots with Tamiya TS-29.
Going to use a piece of a Wine Bottle Seal to replicate the oil coolers. Has a nice checkerboard pattern. Should look good with a light wash.

Looking at reference photos, I just noticed the actual aircraft has eight windows on the right side. Three of them have the yellow emergency exit markings. Luckily, I have two of the RDAF marking sets from the old ESCI Montgomery Dakota boxing.

Decalling Complete!
Noticed a couple other differences between pics of the real thing and the decal diagram. I think the decals are based on a museum example.
Still have the exhausts, atenna and landing lights to go...

Added the ADF aerial and mounts using EZ-Line.
Finished with a Semi-Gloss which I am not sure I am happy with. Seems a little more Gloss than Semi...

Hey Gord, it looks good, not too gloss I think....and, Tuborg or not Tuborg...that is the question

Are those are the Danish insignia I supplied you on that Dakota?
25. August 2020, 16:52
Gordon Sørensen
Yes, Kelly, they are! They worked great and laid down nicely. Had a little silvering on the stripes for the rear day-glo panel, but that is probably down to my me...

I like...I feel I had a part in it. Great presentation.
