Beavering away

An older build from six years ago, this is the Airfix 1/72 DHC Beaver. Tooled in the late 70s, this is one of those really nice but often overlooked Airfix classics. True, there's not a lot of cockpit detail and it's covered in rivets, but it builds so well and really looks the part. I was attracted to this scheme by the dayglo panels, but having seen several of these flying in Harbour Air colors in Nanaimo and Victoria BC recently, I wouldn't mind doing a civilian floatplane version some day.
