"C-47A/DC-3"
nco2006163 (Elkton, Maryland)
Enjoyed putting this model together however, found it a bit challenging to figure out how many pieces fit together. Without worded instuctions, supplied picture instructions were not always clear using arrows pointing to locations. Too many times required separating completed parts to reclue. Take it slow, be careful and be patient both with assembly and disassembly and then reassembly, especially if you are unsure.

"Tribute to “That’s All Brother” lead paratroop plane to Normandy on D-Day."
mwzx225
I build this to look like this plane I had a chance to see at an Air Show. I painted the stripes since another review warned of the decals and used numbers from other kits to make the numbers on the tail accurate and used a stencil to paint the W on the tail. It is a very nice kit and my 1st experience with Photo etch, 30 sets of seat belts in all. Look up the plane on google and read the story of restoration, It was found junked and restored by Commemorative Air Force. Had to free hand nose art, but couldn’t find anything else to do it with. It was fun and turned out ok, We like it anyway.

 
"C-47A Skytrain---The Workhorse of the Military"

This model was everything I thought it would be and more. More details, more pieces, more sub assemblies, more frustrations, more time spent, and more patience needed. With that said, let me say that I enjoyed every minute of the build and finish. It was trying but thats why we build these models. For the challenges, experience, knowledge gained, and of course the satisfaction. I would only recommend this kit to the most experienced modelers. It has teeny tiny parts that even tweezers have a hard time with (Individual Brass Seatbelts) and detailed assemblies (Building the Double Radials with Intake and Exhaust Manifolds) as well as the detailed landing gear (Hooray, Rubber Tires). If there was any disappointment it was, as usual, with old (rotten?) decals. I am more than happy with my finished model even if my age and steadiness of hand in paint are not as professional as I would like. Oh well theres no getting younger but it wont stop me from building. The C-47A was a testimony to American toughness and always will be. You couldnt stop them. Well worth the cost. Love me some Goonie Birds !!!

 
"Overall good kit. Not for a beginner, instructions lacking."
keyda81
Fit was decent. Still needed to test fit, and file some pieces to get them to fit. But overall it went together nicely. Instructions are horrid. Barely any color call outs on a lot of the parts. I didn't use any of the kit decals, masked and painted the markings, so I can't speak for those. I do like the level of detail in this kit. An improvement over the old Monogram. Just make sure to get the Quickboost corrected rudder.

Comments

Actual model may vary from image on box Due to many small parts that could become a choking hazard, please keep away from children 3 years of age and younger.
