This model is an improvement and supersedes the old Swiss Air Lines DC-3 on my web site www.bobscardmodels.net76.net . Basis for this design was the excellent 1:12 “C-47 Skytrain-Fly Model” which gave me many ideas used in this model, as well as some techniques used by Alan Rose in his legendary huge and trophy-like ‘Half DC-3’ wall model. The motor and especially the undercarriage is quite detailed for a 1:50 model. I am also going to re-paint to a 2nd model; looking around for a nicely coloured DC-3, I came upon the livery of South Africa’s Springbok Classic Air, with its lovely bottle green surfaces planes. Or perhaps Namib Air’s DC3. Will be appearing soon, to be followed by a big project, completing Alan Rose’s ‘Half DC-3, but not at 1:12 too much paper! It will be at 1:24 . Alan gave me the green light. This model took the most hours yet, as I now wish to consistently show the riveting on the, so, as it is a free model, I have a wish from all you programming specialists out there..... who can help? Every time someone presses the download button for one of my +/-30 models, I wish to be able to monitor how many times which model has been downloaded. How to do this SIMPLY? As I keep adding new models, the system must be very simple to augment. Simple method please!! Bob S.
