thanks for the thoughtful review. I always loved the C-124's, and I'm glad to see this offering.

I will however beg a small exception to your imformation: You said
"In kit form this is the only one available at this time. There was the Combat Models 1/72nd kit and the Welsh Models 1/144th model. Both seem to be OOP. I have seen a scratchbuilt DC-124A in 1:48. . .Wow! "

Welsh models is currently offering a 1:144 C-124 kit, and Anigrand makes a very fine C-124 kit in cast resin in both 1:144 and 1:72.

Hi Stephen

I can't help but wonder if that airfoil is correct for the wing-roots:



See the original: http://www.carlb-rcplanes.com/C-124sideshot.jpg

Sorry - I'm obviously far too wing/fuselage-relationship fixated after worrying over a new kit on the desk!

All the best
