This came in the mail last night; it is quite model kit of a classic propliner... has full interior including passenger seats and everything. I have wanted a classic airliner for a long while. Think I will be giving up the F-14s, Spitfires, BF-109s,P-51s and etc. for awhile... maybe the rest of my life.

Good luck with the DC 4

I built the C 54 last year and just recently finished the DC 4. As a suggestion, be alert while building the engines. All of the parts are keyed to the next one. If you get one in the wrong place the whole engine will suffer errors. Ask me how I know. And FWIW, I don't ever want to build that kit again.
Remember...... There is a thin line between a hobby and mental illness. Ask me how I know.

Kevin, I've got something that might help a teensy bit

April 21 2017, 7:06 AM 

one of the comments that came up frequently on reviews or perhaps on attempts to build is that the instructions are very confusing. I agreed, so the first thing I did was write up a set of "instructions to the instructions". e-mail me if you'd like a copy- it might help preserve your sanity for just a bit longer!

p.s. This offer goes for others, but please specify whether you've got the C-54 or the civil DC-4 release, as the steps shift a bit.
