Question Douglas Factory Models

Who collects DFMs? Who restores them? Who casts parts for them? I just purchased a DC-4 from another member in here, but it’s going to require some work to restore it back to it’s original glory. This is my first one, so I’m looking for advice. I’d also just love to see other members’ collections.

This is how I want to restore this one. It’s a bit of Northwest Territories history in a classic airline livery. If I can’t get it polished up nice enough, I may elect to go with a more painted Buffalo Airways livery, but this is the goal.

Hi DashSeven,

Thanks for posting the pic of your model. It will need a good amount of restoration for sure. As you're in Yellowknife, NT, you might wish to contact Henry Tenby (who's also in Canada) about the possibility of restoring your model:

https://www.airlinehobby.com/welcome/contact.cfm

There are also several other users on this site who do model restorations, who are also located in Canada as well.

Hope that this info helps.
