Bought this one a while back. Nice little model that compliments my Corgi Dr I very well.

As with many of my diecast purchases, my model maker side takes over and I just have to tinker with it. For this model I:

a) added the forward wing and landing gear bracing wires. I used some stretched plastic sprue that I painted black.

b) re-detailed the propeller, tail skid, and underwing skids from the plastic tan to something that looks more wood like and realistic. I used a light brown acrylic paint that was then overpainted with some wood stain.

c) used some more stretched sprue and created the boarding step. I also used my Tamiya pastels and added a bit of exhaust / oil staining on the underside.
