Help required.
Does anyone have any clear colour photos of the SAAF DC-4's when they were in the White/Silver colour scheme.
I need to be able to download them to print off as I am getting a 1/74 DC-4 kit and wish to build it in these SAAF colours to go with my 1/72 White/Silver Herc C-130BZ & Transall C-160Z.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated as I reside in the UK and photos are difficult to obtain.

Hi Vulcan

I see Mav Decals have released decals for the Viscount that could possibly be used. Lettering might be a bit small for the DC-4, Zane can also produce custom decals as required.

Hi Mars.
Many thanks for that info.
MAV have made several different sets of 1/48 SAAF & other air forces decals for me in the past.
I always use his decals for my African subjects as I battle to obtain these decals from any where else. I have found nothing is too much to ask from Zane. He has always produced what I need such as the ones on my 1/48 Ventura as used by the SAAF and now my 1/48 C-130 Herk that I busy completing as the SAAF 30 Years of Herc and 28 Sqn 50 years anniversary.

I battle getting decent colour photos of the earlier SAAF colour schemes, so sometime I have to use those in the attached magazine (By L.J. Voosloo) or work from various books on the SAAF that I have. The unfortunate part is that most of the books have photos of the aircraft in their camo colours.
