As one of the most important aircraft of the Second World War, the Douglas C-47 Skytrain was the military version of the exceptional DC-3 civilian airliner and was described by General Dwight D Eisenhower as one of the ‘Four Tools of Victory’ that helped the Allied forces prevail during WWII. Used extensively by the Royal Air Force, almost 2,000 aircraft transformed Britain’s ability to move troops, equipment and supplies by air.

The Douglas DC-3/Dakota really is something of an aviation phenomenon. An advanced early airliner turned WWII transport and paratrooper delivery warhorse, without which the Allies would have struggled to win WWII, large numbers of these aircraft continue to fly to this day, long after its contemporaries had been consigned to the aviation history books. This year’s 75th Anniversary of D-Day commemorations will see large numbers of these aircraft paying tribute to the brave people who took part in this historic invasion.

Excelent kit

It's a very good kit, overall decent fit, although the cockpit windows are a little fiddly to get in place. Had an issue with some missing parts, but was swiftly sorted out, as is the good standard of Airfix's customer support. :) Now on display alongside my other models, taking up rather a lot of space. The one major improvement that could be made is the inclusion of a decal for the black on the nose of the aircraft.
