Luchtvaart Haul (AA 757, Pan Am DC-3)
 
My sister and her husband recently went to Europe for their honeymoon. One of their stops was Amsterdam to my delight so I asked if they could bring home a couple of planes for me. I picked the ones I know my local shops don't sell and that aren't so big because of their luggage space. :p

Out of curiosity, what made you choose the Hobby Master version of the Pan Am DC-3 over the Gemini version? I still haven't seen a Hobby Master DC-3 in person and I've been curious about this model since it was first announced. Gemini has such a good DC-3 model that it surprised a lot of people when Hobby Master announced that they were also putting out a DC-3. I'm not sure anybody's done a review of one here yet. A lot of people voiced their opinions based on the pictures, but you're the first I'm aware of who owns one in here.

I think there's a lot of potential to get some interesting DC-3 liveries out of Hobby Master.

I just searched the Aviation Mega Store site for a Pan Am DC-3 and only the Hobby Master showed up in the results.

Yup! Even more since I haven't seen a rival's mould in the flesh to compare it to. :p

Front and Cockpit of DC-3 looks awful :sad: -better wait for Herpa or Gemini to do the Panam DC-3.

Gemini has not only done it, they did the exact same registration as this HM Pan Am DC-3. I have a couple Gemini DC-3s and I love them, but the HM DC-3 doesn't offend me as much as it does some people. I think the Gemini model is better, but I'd buy an HM release if they put out a livery I had to have.

The HM may be inferior to Gemini's but to me it still looks like a DC-3 and that's all that matters to me. Same reason why I have a couple of Eagle models.

If you look at the sold out Gemini DC-3 PANAM you may see the difference:D
