Information

The DC-3 is one of the most famous aircraft in the history of aviation. Its introduction in the 1930's revolutionised air travel and made it possible for even the average person to afford to fly. When WWII began in 1939, the DC-3 was quickly adapted for military use and pressed into service as the C-47, also known as the Skytrain. The C-47 was used by all the Allied nations during the war and continued in service long afterward. Eventually, some C-47's were even converted to heavily armed gunships and used in Vietnam.

Vietnam era build
By ricmac50 August 14, 2015
I built this model for a friend of mine that is a Vietnam veteran. He was associated with the OMS maintenance group which serviced these planes. I painted the plane with camouflage color scheme with tan, light green and dark green. This model is a 1:72 ,Italeri model and is a very good looking model for it's size. I enjoyed building for a military veteran in the Air Force in 1970 Vietnam.

Very nice older kit, good build, the detail is not up to today's standards
By rarem37 September 16, 2016
This kit builds up well, but it is not up to the standards of today's new molds. The gaps and joins need sanding to get smooth. This kit has been issued in a number of different versions including a gunship. They all have one thing in common; you must use a great deal of car when installing the cockpit glass. It is a very tight fit and if you try to force it; it will break!
