Greg Baker Your cabinet pics made me track this baby down for a closer look. Wow... nice work
17. January at 04:44:00
Donald Dickson II Greg, thank you sir! This is one of my favorites. I enjoyed the build, learned a lot, and I love how it turned out. :)
17. January at 04:55:08
Greg Baker I suddenly started rifling through the Tintin albums to see if he ever flew in a DC-4... ;)
17. January at 05:07:52
Clifford Keesler Nice one Donald. My local Hobby Lobby never had any of those. They seem to only stock mainly 1/72 Acadmey stuff with the random Revell F-102A or F-18 thrown in. Though I did find the Revell Pro Modler ME-410 in the clearance isle once. I got both of my F-102's there though.
17. January at 22:02:49
Donald Dickson II I do have one extra if either of you gents get interested.
17. January at 22:31:42
Clifford Keesler Thanks Donald. I will try and remember that, if I get to where I can get one. Right now my Suv takes precedence(new tires and battery.) Bloody tires cost 2000.00 dollars apiece.

Okay...Revell's new 1:72 C-54 Skymaster was reputed to be due out in April of this year. It's now May; no kit available through the usual channels. My dealer now says June. Has Revell announced anything?

Kelly Wellington Okay....Today I saw the first listing (on eBay) of this kit for near the expected pricing....$35.90 with $9.95 shipping. Move to your nearest dealer to place your order.

Gordon Sørensen Squadron has them listed for $39.95
13. September 2015 at 02:02:17
Kelly Wellington Yep. I got mine from the hobby shop and paid $39.99. No shipping costs (or, more accurately, 'shipping included'). It's a huge box; the same size as the Airfix Nimrod kit.
13. September 2015 at 04:28:32
Gordon Sørensen Didn't know the box was that big! Looking forward to seeing your build!
13. September 2015 at 16:04:22
Kelly Wellington Well...It's a bit back in the queue. I'm still focused on craft of the War of the Atlantic....I'm just finishing up an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley in Coastal Command mufti. I haven't built out one of my transport kits since my Constellation got cat-crushed. I still intend to do a Berlin Airlift set of craft, and the Skymaster is a crucial element of that. Up until now, it's been almost entirely reliant upon a Mach2 kit.
13. September 2015 at 19:43:29
Daniel Smith Just picked up one from my local HobbyLobby for $29.99USD with there 40% off coupon. Man there is a lot of plastic in the box. :D

Clifford Keesler Another master piece Christian?. I like the subject.
30. April 2016 at 18:25:54
Christian Bruer Hopefully it will Clifford :)
Yes I like the subject too, but still wait for a better kit. Thought Roden will do one like their new DC-3 but they didn't.
I got some new decals – a DC-4 from Nordic-Air in white, grey and yellow livery. Guess that will look nice once finished.

Kerry Cox Was this the "Chocolate Bomber" used during the 'Berlin air lift' in the early 50's ?
You have got hold of some history here Sven, and so far, it's looking so good. :)
Cheers

komoras Great shading
What putty did you use in the last picture? Mr.Surfacer?

Holger Kranich Hi Sven, seems as Revell did a good Job, hu?

Sven Schönyan Hey guys, thank you for your nice comments! The AK book is really very helpful. The Revell tooling is surprisingly very detailed and the fit of the interior is good. I started work on the wings and nacelles and there is some more work to do with filler and putty. I show you next time.

@ Koromas: yes that´s Mr. Surfacer. Even when there was a greater gap and not so good alignement of the parts the Revell plastic in this case is easy to grind and I soon got the correct shape.

@ Holger: So far Revell did a good job.

Sven Schönyan @ Kerry: Yes this is one of the "Rosinenbomber" as we call them. There were some more type of aircraft involved in the Berlin Air Lift but this is the most common one if I recall it correctly.

Kerry Cox Sven, thanks for that mate, as I was not quite sure, but as I said, it looks to be a great build mate, :)

ricmac50
This model in its existing size of 1/144 is not worth the price that is being asked. The plane is excessively small and hard to handle. The paint scheme is not user friendly and very hard to follow from the stand point of the models box pictures. I bought it because of the THUNDERBIRD paint scheme but for the price of 21.00 dollars for this model, it is just not worth it. Maybe at the scale of 1/72 for the model may have been a good size for this but not 1/144. Very Poor Choice....

B It's minicrap,whoops I meant minicraft. I've had nothing but horrible experiences with their kits.
17. June 2014 at 01:01:09
ricmac50 Brandon, Yes, I agree. I have noticed other builders when they post their building model of the C-54 and I have to say that they are not very good and you can use GOOGLE, to see these models, (use the heading C-54 THUNDERBIRDS SUPPORT and you can see what I'm talking about). I had to manually paint the red, white, blue on the prop tips, the decals are a joke. I am taking my time with this model because I am setting up a collection of all THUNDERBIRD planes from start to present. And since no one makes a 1/72 or bigger then I'm stuck with the 1/144.
17. June 2014 at 20:39:13
ricmac50 I finished with the model but believe me when I say, this model is the pits when it comes to assembly and placing decals on model. I used Future on the decals to keep them from disintegrating but the future just made the decals fade and stain the decals. My paint job in general came out great, I used Rust-Oleum metallic silver and it looks great. But the paint looks substandard with the decals that came out so bad... Don't waste your money on Minicraft products and Revell of Germany, another loser of a company that makes very low quality models... Interested why I say Revell of Germany, ask me why!!!!

Urban Gardini You're not precisely fair here I'd say. RoG have wonderful top of the line kits in their product line as well as older reboxed ones from their back catalogue or from other brands. Just use the timelines here at Scalemates in your research and you'll find out more.

Burkhard D Well, a kit in 144 scale is small and hard to paint by nature, one cannot really blame the manufacturer for it.
Also one may be tempted to say 'Minicrap' in some cases, but their kits are not bad across the board and every manufacturer has some lemons in its portfolio. I have seen a number of Minicraft kits built into very nice models.
7. September 2014 at 11:58:26
ricmac50 I guess everyone has an opinion as to what is good and what is bad. Also, I don't have the resources to purchase say... a twenty five dollar cockpit assembly from a third party, or a complete wheel assembly made of metal, so I make do with what I have. I favor the 1/48 and occasional 1/32 scale models. And we are all entitled to our comments and what is good for the goose may not be good for the gander....But I'm optimistic, as long as you have fun building, that is all that matters to each individual. No one is blaming the manufacturer but if you like your fingers to cramp up or cross because the parts are so small, I guess to each his own. I'm 6 ft. 2 inches tall and my hands are just as big, so it is a little difficult to work with these models. I do enjoy watching videos of other modelers when they assemble these miniature planes, they do magnificent work. Almost everyone....
