Next Build: 1/48 Trumpeter C-47 converted to the R4D-5 “Tropical Tilly”

My next build is a little different than the typical historical build. I am going to Hollywood. The 1/48 Trumpeter C-47 will be converted to the R4D-5 that was used in the 1951 Sci-Fi/Horror classic movie “The Thing From Another World” from Howard Hawks. I will be using the Lone Star Models C-47 arctic conversion resin set to aid in the conversion. So join me for a little movie magic to bring this aircraft to a nice display model. Check out all the photos and details in my build log at 1/48 R4D-5 Tropical Tilly
