Starting the climactic ending 1/48 Trumpeter C-47 conversion to the Tropical Tilly R4D-5 from the 1951 movie “The Thing from another world”.

As I begin scene 10 I have completed the aircraft. I have installed the skis and engines then added many numerous small details to the aircraft like antennas, antenna cables, scratch built windscreen wipers, and doing the final paint touch-ups. I will be mounting the aircraft on an 18” round display base which will be covered in snow. I will be using the Scene-O-Rama snow kit to create the details on the base as well as add the snowy weathering to the aircraft.

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