1/144 C-46 Commando from Atlas Editions

Last model for this month is this C-46 Commando from Atlas Editions. I wasn't planning to buy one, but a lucky 3.50GBP bid on Ebay was enough :)

The model is entirely in diecast; and like all the Atlas Edition 1/144 models, it comes with stand, optional landing gear and a 6-page booklet. It's not the best model of the range, the joint gap on the nose in particular, is quite visible unfortunately.
Looks good though, I like the fact that the windows are not just painted on the fuselage.
Here it is next to it's 1/144 scale diecast brother, a C-47 from Corgi:
...and here are the scanned pages of the booklet:
