  Indian Republic day 



I had an Italeri C-47/Dc-3 for some reason I was never able to complete it as it was too big for my shelf, however, a few weeks ago I saw a post where the IAF donated a C-47 to Bangladesh, thought why not I give it a go as other liveries of the IAF has done by fellow modeler.

It was smoothly built, the only hard part was the thin strip of light and dark blue, I masked the whole line and paint it, some are little serpentine hehehe, 

Painting was done with Tamiya white and silver. I thought of giving some weathering effect, however, we donated in pristine condition so I didn't do any.

Hope it has turned out okay, cheers.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Republic day.
