1/144 DHC-2 Beaver - Miniwing

1/144 DHC-2 Beaver - Miniwing
The latest release from Miniwing is another classic icon, the DHC-2 Beaver this venerable aircraft served with over 30 air forces around the world both big and small. Produced primarily between 1947 and 1967, I dare say there are a fair few of the 1,600+ produced still flying around the world in various guises!

The kit itself features all the hallmarks of a typical Miniwings release with nice casting, good detailing and fair panel lines, good fit.. Additional features for Miniwing is the clear resin glazing, and the p/e etched parts, in particular the prop blades.

Decals by Y-Kraft are provided for 3x schemes, 
L-20A of 10 TRW USAF (early  1960s)
DHC-2 in UN Service over the Congo (1960)
L-20A of 300 Sdn RNLAF (Royal Dutch Airforce)
