I've started to build "Daisy". So far only base paint of the interior. This kit from Trumpeter is really nice with lots of details and some photo etched parts.

Great start Björn. Really nice interior 👍. Looks like a big one too.

Now the interior is all finished. I took a few photos before closing the fuselage. Most of the details will not be seen again😉.

Gloss black all sprayed in preparation for the polished aluminum. Never done a metal look before.. Scary D:

She looks fine. If you're using Alclad alu, just be sure to varnish asap. Otherwise you run the risk of tearing of the paint when masking for other paints.

Thanks guys!
@Martin, thanks for the suggestion! Masking has worked out well, so far..
A hughe releif when the SAS Dragon head came out well. I still have all the text and the swedish/danish/norwegian flags to mask and paint, but now I'll have a break and a well deserved beer 🙂.

Today has been all about masking and painting the text on the sides of the plane. It worked out really well. I also added the red on the dragon head. Next will be the national insignias.

Lookin' good. But why is there a gap in the blue line? Is that where the door is supposed to be?

Looking good so far Björn 👍 . This particular aircraft has a very interesting history, really nice to see it being built in 1/48.

Thanks Mats and Martin!
@Martin the gap is where the national insignias will be. I'm working on them now 🙂.

Thanks Clifford and Erik!
The SAS logo with the national insignias are now finished. It was a little tricky to get all the masks to line up correctly.

Thanks guys!
I've done some touch ups on the paint after handling the fuselage for all the masking and now I'm only waiting for my aqua gloss to arrive so I can seal it and do final assembly.

Great looking interior and engine detail, Björn! The NMF and SAS logos look fantastic! Great job!

Thanks Essi and Gordon!
I actually made a mistake on the SAS-logo text. The letters should have less spacing in between them.

The DC-3 is finished! 🙂
This was a really nice kit to build. It had some PE parts and rubber wheels. Also the elevators and the rudder are poseable.

Thanks James!

Thanks Spanjaard and David!
Yes, these 1/48-scale planes are big. And I have a couple more coming...
23 November 2017, 19:53
I wish i could have all that space to have them later 🙂

Erik Leijdens
Fantastic work! Looking really good mate

Björn Svedberg
Thanks Erik!
@Spanjaard I don't really have the space either, so I have to find some...
This, though is a present for my brother on his birthday.
23 November 2017, 21:35
i see, good luck in the search of space 🙂
