Roden 1/72 scale Fairchild C-123B Provider

By Paul Boyer
Published: July 8, 2014

Roden’s new Fairchild C-123B Provider plastic model kit brings sighs of relief from 1/72 scale builders who for decades have had only subpar kits of this significant transport. In its first issue, Roden provides the first production version of the Provider. The parts are molded in gray and clear styrene and include decent interior detail for the flight deck and cargo compartments. The landing gear is well detailed; maybe too detailed, as the nose gear strut assembly is complex and wobbly.
