Khee-Kha Art Products Bellanca CH-300 Inter Island Airways for Hawaiian Airlines 85th Anniversary

This 1/72 scale model was commissioned for the 85th Anniversary of Hawaiian Airlines, being Inter Island Airways the direct predecessor from which Hawaiian Airlines came to be, and this Bellanca the very first plane Inter Islands used.
There is an actual flying restoration of this plane, which due to technical aspects had some changes and slightly departs from the original plane in a few aspects. This model is an exact replica of the original, historical plane. It was made from a Khee-Kha Art Products vacuum-formed kit, with some additions and home-made decals.
I had a good time researching even further and building this commission, and it helped that I had built another model of this very same plane some time ago for a friend:
I truly enjoy going to Hawaii on vacations, and may be one day I will be able to fly in that restored plane..:-)
