Spotlight Review

"First and maybe last italeri."
Worst of my kits yet. Plastic is weirdly thick but soft and bendy. Clear parts are brittle. Mold us old and needs retooling. Mold lines and ejector pin marks on every single part. Flash on several parts some parts were incase in it. Lots of sanding and filling required. Small fiddly parts were misshapen and brittle. Sprue gates were very large. Instructions were vague and decals were missnumbered on call out sheet. Stencils were tiny and some simply melted away when wet. Decals were oddly thick on some thin on others. Two have different thickness on the same decal. I took pics of these 2 decals. Front windshield doesn't fit at all. Very frustrating kit although the subject itself is one I'd like to try again.

"Very nice kit"
This was an easy build, would recommend it for everyone.

"C-47 Skytrain model"
Pretty easy to build, good instructions for 12yr old and up.Good fit with pieces except for wings; gaps(putty needed). Aircraft easy to paint and decals go on well. Displays very good with other WWII 1/72 scale aircraft. Some call this plane a Gooney Bird.

"Great value"

Beautiful detail. Extensive decal sheet. Not too complicated especially for a new or returning to the hobby modeler. Can be detailed out to whatever level you want.


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.
