Just finished posting my Beech UC-45J Expediter in 1/72.

I used the Hobbycraft C-45F kit and Super Scale decals.

The kit is far from perfect, but turned out better than expected.

Great looking model Keith. I'm working on the Encore kit right now and I have the same decal sheet that you used. I was thinking of doing the USN option despite the trouble I always seem to have with white and orange USN trainer schemes!

I really wanted to do the NAS Pensacola aircraft too but was having trouble
with my airbrush/air regulator and figured I'd never get the orange and white
to go down smoothly.

I'm happy with the scheme I chose but now that my regulator is fixed I can't
help but think I should get the Encore kit and use the NAVY markings.
Most likely my modeling-A.D.D. will kick in and I'll forget all about it.

Good luck with your kit!
Keith
