Default Britains Buffalo - Air Atlantique DC6

Picked up a Western Models DC6 in the colors of Air Atlantique G-SIXC.
A few years ago Air Atlantique were a sort of UK equivalent to Buffalo Airways, Running a fleet of DC3's, a couple of DC6's, a Convair 240 and numerous L188 Electras. Most now long gone, but it made Coventry airport a bit like a mini Miami for Propliners. Flying mainly Cargo and Pollution control.

This is added to my HM L188 Electra and would be nice to pick up a Small World DC3 Although I may customise an old DC3 model.

Very nice model. I have this DC6 in another Air Atlantique livery. In the 90s it was a real treat to look after the livestock and car parts flights on their DC6.

I made many trips to Coventry during the Air Atlantique years and am pleased to have the Aeroclassics 1/400 set of DC-6, DC-3 and Electra in my collection. Would like to see the DC-6 repeated on the newer mould.

Lovely Jubbly. Always nice to see the old WMs. This being one of my favourites.

This was the only original DC-6 model with the prop spinners. A few of the later WM UKs have them.

Martin/Small World also did G-SIXC in the later green/black scheme as well as DC-3 G-AMRA.
