Herb Arnold's Argus

Herb Arnold, a former member of the US Navy, had an appreciation for the history of RCAF and RCN operations and in 2004 decided to build a model of the Argus. Using a 1/144 Welsh Britannia and grafting on a new nose from a DC-6B the work began.

The mad boom was constructed out of a chopstick.


The project is almost complete with a few details still to be addressed. Herb got the decals from CanMilAir in London, Ontario.
