#698 Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker
Building the Dora Wings kit of the Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker with an appropriately? kitsch presentation: Inter Island Airways livery over the beaches of Hawaii.
Giuseppe Mario Bellanca emigrated from Italy to the US in 1911, founding the Bellanca Aircraft Company in 1927.
The Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker, a six-seat utility aircraft, had it’s first flight in 1929.
A plane in flight needs at least a pilot, so I grabbed a somewhat suitable civilian figure. Not very visible in the final product.
fitting the clear parts is a bit tricky, but after a little fettling it all goes together quite well
plane is basically finished, now thinking about the final presentation..

Dora Wings of Ukraine have a wonderfully eclectic range of aircraft from the “golden era” of flight. Eugen told his story to Chris Meddings on the Models from Ukraine podcast Episode 9 - it is well worth a listen if you are interested in how small kit business became one of the best in the world, and continues to do so in the middle of a war.
