Here is my DHC-6 Twin Otter from Revell. It´s originally the old Matchbox kit.

I added adapted pilots from Preiser (H0 scale, 1/87) and some more details (antennas, cleats on the floats, ladder, windscreen wipers). I decided to build it with the short nose and floats, and gave the West Coast Air paint scheme to my model, the kit offers.

Inside the fuselage I installed a block of wood with a silicone tube inside to insert the display.

The model was painted with brush (Enamels from Humbrol and Revell) and sealed with clear, silk varnish I sprayed on.
