FORBIDDEN PLANET SAUCER C-57D DIORAMA #03 (JIM CROMPTON)
Attached are pictures I would like to share of a
model I completed of the C57D from Polar Lights.
I put all the work into building a kit that was
free of exterior seams and was fully lighted in
the motor section (although this detail was
unfortunately was washed out by the lighting I
used in the pictures).
My intent was to build an exterior display prop.
This is probably the largest model I have even
assembled thus far. The interior contains batteries
and wires, and the saucer sections of the kit were
reinforced to making handling and moving easier.
The PL kit is extremely large (probably a bit too
big for proper display in most homes), but this
adds to making it a nice prop-sized replica.
I have a smaller vacu-form kit that I also plan to
build and detail, and I hope to have more C57D
pictures in the future.
