Douglas DC-3 Dakota Replica

$799.00

This DC-3 Dakota Model Airplane is a replica model of the original DC-3 aircraft that had its first flight in 1935. Handmade from metal sheet attached to a light weight frame, this meticulous reproduction shows impeccable attention to detail, from the radials engines, the movable rudder and elevators on the vertical and horizontal stabilizers, and the movable ailerons, to the landing gear which is so well assembled that even the wheel wells are revealed, and as such is the perfect gift for the discerning collector.

The DC-3 Dakota was the most popular commercial aircraft of its time and 16,079 were eventually manufactured. It was considered fast; flying West to East was only a 15 hour flight with 3 refueling stops. The DC-3 Dakota gained a reputation as the workhorse of the skies because of its ability to land just about anywhere there was a dirt or grass runway.

During World War II, the armed forces of many countries used the C-47 and modified DC-3s for the transport of troops, cargo, and wounded. The U.S. Naval designation was R4D. More than 10,000 aircraft were produced from 1935 until August 1945.

The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing propeller-driven airliner. Its speed and range revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Its lasting impact on the airline industry and World War II makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever made, and many DC-3s and converted C-47s are still used in all parts of the world.

The Douglas DC-3 Dakota Replica is a unique snapshot of history beautifully articulated for the discerning collector.

Minor assembly is required by attaching wings to the main body by the engine mounts and affixing the propellers.
