The Roden C-124C kit comes as the logical conclusion to their first release of the C-124A reviewed here.

The C-124C kit comes with an extra sprue containing the new engine cowlings that look pretty good and the new engine fronts (wrong number of cylinders but impossible to see behind the props).  Also another new sprue for the square tip propellers is included.  The sprue that contains the wheel wells and wingtip heaters now comes with the thimble nose that was manually removed from the sprue by Roden during the C-124A release.  The rest of the parts are the same and no changes have been made in any other way.  So the comments found in the C-124A review still apply.  No locating pins or tabs will require careful assembly on the part of the modeler.  Surface prepping will be a must for a natural metal finish.

My only complaint is the plain Jane scheme they chose for this release.

With all the dayglo arctic schemes out there they went and chose the simplest scheme possible.

I competent modeler will be able to turn this not so little kit to head turner.  This release renders the Anigrand kit obsolete.

Recommended to experienced modelers.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
