Aurora 1/48ish Dehavilland DH-4

Recommended Posts

Another step on my journey down the road of the old Aurora WW I kits. This is their DH-4. It comes with the four bladed prop instead of two and with the dual rear Lewis guns. That gun mount was disliked by the gunners as being bulky, hard to bring to bear and used up a LOT of ammunition. I added my usual basic interior, but the rest is OOTB.

Love it - looks great! Have had one of these kits 'seasoning' in the stash for ages (next to the Jenny) and this inspires me to break it out...unless the 1/72 gets done first.

How did you do the brass prop-edge guards?

Just hand painted with old Testor's "Brass" paint. Note that the one on the blade at 1-2 o'clock is on the wrong edge! Didn't see that until I uploaded the post. 😮

Very nice, Ron. What did you use for the floor of the cockpit. Nick

Dang nice DH-4, and that scheme brightens an otherwise drab plane. You lost nothing on your ability to rig over the years either! Congrats!

COOL!

Great job Ron.

What color red is that?  A custom mix or what?

Hard to believe how old this kit is, but you made it great. Your motto should be MAGA 'Make Aurora Great Again".
