Greetings all... today I have an older project to show, the RCAF C-119 Boxcar I built for my friend the late Reg Clarke. This is one of the few built models I kept after his passing last year. It's an Italeri/Testors kit that was enhanced with the amazing Leading Edge decals and resin nose. Since I had to start tagging along with the navy, my to-do pile is growing and growing...

The 119 has seen a few months' worth of dust, and loss of a pitot tube. Have to remedy that later. I enjoyed doing this one, it went together fairly well and the decals fit perfectly. I'm building a second one, so I may release this to the museum where the rest of Reg's collection now enjoys some exposure...

Support your local hobby shop, folks. It's the only way to keep them open!
