Airfix C-47; It’s exhausting work!

Just a small update as the rudder now fits better and I took the opportunity to save myself some money on aftermarket exhausts by drilling out the kit supplied ones. Approximately 10 minutes work with a drill and dentists burrs and here you are;

The model is actually near completion as the undercarriage is next to be assembled and the glazing just needs to be put in.
It might seem unusual to add the glazing now but previous experience means it’s an ideal time as no doubt the fit of parts, especially the landing lights, will need some filling, sanding and polishing to make them look like part of the wing rather than added extras and the windscreen will probably fit where it touches too.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
