Cool WHV Nord Noratlas

Prologue:

I decided to go thru my remaining old models from Wilhelmshavener ( WHV ) of which I have only two left. The Nord Noratlas and the SAAB Viggen. These are designs from the 1960's and 70's and do show their age ( especially the Nord ). Unfortunately, the models I purchased back in the late 1970's were stored and moved so many times, that the paper itself is warped/wrinkled from moisture and heat as well as age ( 40 some odd years or so ). I really did not intend to build those two any more since I already built them back then ( I purchased two of each ). However, the Nord will be repainted soon and I intend to build the model in 3 versions:


The plan:

1- Scan the model I have , print it on fresh card paper and build as is in 1:50 scale a test model for future mods.

2- Have a repainted version in Israeli Air Force blue and brown colors and build it in the original 1:50 scale.

3- Print the repainted Israeli version in 1:30 to match the rest of the Israeli Air Force collection I have built in paper. This one will have dropped flaps and separate control surfaces and improved landing gear. I may also need a cockpit done for it. Not sure how well the parts will scale up ( may need more transitional parts in the nose and tail for smoother curvatures ).




For now here is a picture of the old kit I purchased back then.

and some reference pics:

This will be a lengthy process, but I will start shortly with the first one.

Thumbs up Other builds

Other builders already built it as I am sure countless others

and a picture from the German site:

There was also an Israeli version print in the IAF magazine back in the 1960's which they only added the stars and the registration numbers instead of the German marking of this same kit.

Exclamation The intended look

Here is the plastic Heller kit in 1/72 scale Nord Noratlas I built 25 years ago in IAF colors. Hopefully the paper version will be similar.

Isaac, it will be a big process, but well worth it. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out.

Interesting project.I use to have this model from WHM but way back then I wasn't interested in 1:50 all that much so I traded it away.

Good luck.

Good luck.
When I was a kid, 1/50 scale was king. All my models were at that scale. I still have my B-58 and the Grumman Albatross from WHV in my possession ( over 40 years now ).

Then in the early years of 2000's, I discovered the 1/33 and have built at that scale mostly. My ultimate goal for this Nord is to scale it up.
