Here are several pictures of the unlit/unpainted model in Flight mode and Landing and landing with gear down...

You can see the Cage within the drive section...

Did the same person design the Jupiter 2?

Re: My C-57D BUILD
Good question, that.

I didn't realize this was the new 1/144 scale kit. very nice looking indeed.

Does the landing gear retract?

What paints will you be using on it?

Re: My C-57D BUILD
Are there stairways on all 3 of the landing legs? the larger kit didnt have that though it should have.

Re: My C-57D BUILD

In between client builds of a Moebius Jupiter 2 and a Polar Lights Jupite2, I came up with a uniform IN SCALE lighting for the Engine.

I air brushed the Clear inserts for the "Cage" with my new IWATA air brush clear red. Then with some extra lighting stuff I had on hand riged my own lighting. I think I have the rotating cage issue figured out as well, but have to get back to the other builds...

Here are several profile shots of the C-57D. While working on my Jupiter 2's I also airbrushed the first coat of Tamiya Silver....

Here is the main Access area..

And a rear loading area...
