Working on scene 9 of the 1/48 Trumpeter C-47 conversion to the Tropical Tilly R4D-5 from the 1951 movie “The Thing from another world”.

This week the decals were all applied and the gloss top coat painted. I started to assemble the main landing gear as well as I finished modifying the skis for this kit. I am adding some of the finer details like the antennas under the fuselage and assembling the front of the engines with the propellers. Everything is coming together nicely on this build. Once the finer details are completed and the main landing gear is assembled I should be at the final “scene” soon.

 Check out all the photos and details from the start in my build log at 1/48 R4D-5 Tropical Tilly
