TOPIC: Roden 1/144 C-141B

Roden 1/144 C-141B 05 Sep 2019 00:53 #1

This was supposed to be a quick build but then I had to go and decide I wanted the white top scheme. By the dates on my build photos I started it in late March 2018 and built it along side the Monogram 1/48 early B-26 conversion and the Airfix 1/48 B-57. What was I thinking!!
Anyway, it's done and here it is. I used Caracal decals set 144002 which has markings for 11 different C-141 schemes and worked as nice or better than any decals I have ever used. In these markings it is actually a C-141C, the Hanoi Taxi in the Air Force Museum.
Overall fits were good, though a little extra effort was need on the landing gear. Details in my build log here:

My plastic model production is going to be mostly interrupted for awhile as I have a backlog of R/C builds to work on. But I'll be here occasionally building something simple, like a Tamiya kit. The P-38 is on order from HLJ.

Awesome looker, John. I used to see a lot of these around Charleston and Norfolk. Back in the day.
