1/48 Hobbycraft Canada DHC-3 (turbo) Otter

Gallery Article by Chris Parsons on Mar 28 2012



Yes, another turbo Otter, but who could possibly resist this color scheme, not me obviously.  I won't bore with the building of the model.  I used my turbine engine conversion, (I still have 2 Otters to chop up) a yard of Tamiya masking tape was needed for the task of putting on colors.

The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics except the prop spinner which is bare metal foil.  It may look a little haggard in some pictures because I dropped it while removing masking tape, (yes, it had been completed) it struck my work bench where it suffered some structural failures and bounced off onto the floor where it exploded. This added about two weeks to the build, re-build? and a (short) temper tantrum.

I hope it meets approval
