It has been a long hunt for Gemini Jets C-GPNR 1/200 since only 400 were produced. And when finally one came available (at a reasonable price) I had already started the project of making one my self. The kit is the fabulous Hasegawa C-47 with two-in-one box, so I decided also to create Buffalo Joe’s most beautiful DC-3 CF-CUE.
Let's hope this inspires one of the producers to bring CF-CUE as die-cast. She certainly deserves it. CF-CUE has a rich history in Canadian aviation; this bird was the first one to land at Yellowknife airport when the airport initially opened.
A huge helping hand came from Ben Sweezy of V1 Decals
He created the very nice custom made decals (Mind the details: CF-CUE on the fin, but C-FCUE under the wings). I highly recommend his work!
Excuse for the quality of the detail photos. The only camera available that could take macro shots was….my iPhone ;-)
Cheers, vintage jet
