Here's a look at Platz's very neat new Commando - the first release featuring decals for post war Japanese and USAF service.

What a good looking Commando! That p/e bulkhead -- ingenious!

Hmm, I may have to reconsider 1/144....

Recently got this kit in the mail, and I can see it's as good as this fine review suggests.
The only issue is that only 4-blade props were supplied, meaning I'll have to pilfer another kit for 3-bladed props. Unless I can find any AM.

Everything Platz makes is beautiful and very well engineered.

re AM props, Welsh models have a variety of white metal props for sale in 1/144, probobly something there that would be a good fit, the DC-4 ones maybe.
