DC-6(ish)

The Operation Vijay game (more on that soon) allowed for the possibility of Portuguese reinforcements arriving by air.  Thus it was back to my box of random 1/300 aircraft to select a suitable model.  The Portuguese Air Force had a few DC-6 on fleet and I had a spare model of the very similar C-54.  This is a Heroics & Ros casting and is really quite a big lump of metal.
A least the markings were a bit easier to paint on surfaces so large!

Nicely done Tim, a quick check in the internet thingy and I found that the Portuguese had the C54 as well, so you can't go wrong!

Very pretty. Nice clean scheme. I'll have to take a look at these 1/300 aircraft - they look fun.

There was a plan to send a pair of DC-6s to Goa during the crisis but historically it never happened. But that's close enough for me!

And a hell of a wide range available for not a lot of outlay.
