Caracal Models CD 72046: DHC-6 Twin Otter part 1

Units: Various




Scott Van Aken

Here is another neat shet from Caracal Models that is for an older kit, the Matchbox 1/72 DHC-6. Revell purchased Matchbox several years back and has been releasing them from time to time and that includes this one. It is a nice kit that takes a bit of TLC, but makes into a very nice model. There are four colorful and interesting options on this one.

DHC-6 Twin Otter "VP-FAZ", British Antarctic Society

DHC-6 Twin Otter "C-FCSU", Canada Coast Guard

UV-18B Twin Otter 77-0464, USAF Academy Skydiving Team

UV-18B Twin Otter 77-0465, USAF Academy Skydiving Team - WWII heritage scheme

The decals are superbly printed by Cartograf and it looks like you can do all four options with this sheet. A nice part of this is that you are provided with all of pinstriping, which makes it a lot easier to do the USAFA option. The white stripes on the Canadian option and the invasion stripes have to be painted.
