Decided to do some builds that have been in the stash for too long. This time a Testors C-131-A Samaritan mostly modified into a CC-109 Cosmopolitan as used by the Canadian Forces until the early 90s.

The engines were slightly modified, but the props were a problem. As many times as I tried I could not get the new 4 blues to look right on the kits three bladed hub. In the end I just cut off the props and made it “ in flight”. Or at least “in taxi”. The decals are a mix of Arrow Graphics, 1/72 Leading Edge Starfighter and some left over from a 26 decals CC-137. 

I added a photo of all the 1/144 planes that were finished today.
