LAST and made by J. M. BODEY
The dear old Dakota has for so many years been the stand-by of Airlines large and small throughout the world, as well as being a prominent transport in World War Il, playing a very important part in the invasion of Europe.
For the scale modeler it lends itself to a greater variety of color schemes than any other type we can call to mind, Maurice Bodey chose the unusual Philippine Airlines decor and on the plan we show what is probably the brightest C-47 in the American forces, recently based at Bovingdon, Hertfordshire, and which is used for the AACS (Airways Air Communication System) Branch of MATS to check instrument flying aids at various air bases Its bright day-glo orange, white, blue and silver color scheme are most attractive. Many other color schemes can be found in the "BP Book of Airlines"
