Product Description

Product Description

Douglas DC-3 has a 34 1/2" wingspan. Considered to be the single most important aircraft in the history of air transportation, the DC-3 first flew in 1935. Douglas Aircraft built it as a replacement for the smaller DC-2. Its 180 MPH cruising speed made it the fastest of its day, and carried 11 more passengers than the Boeing 247. By 1938, 80 percent of all American commercial airline traffic was carried on DC-3's. During World War 2, the military conversion of the DC-3, the C-47 was used by the thousands in every theatre of the war. After the war, many of the surplus C-47's were converted back to civilian service. • Series 800 kits are truly model building worthy of the time and effort and contain the best quality materials and instructions • Designed as a Build 'N Show display model; Can also be built as a C-47 and decals & instructions to build either model are included • Guillow's - your one source for model plane kits since 1926

this kit is as the name implies an oldie but goody. It is an accurate model of this classic. You should have some experience building this type of model. I want to convert this to electric powered RC. The seller did an excellent job of filling this order. I will buy more of this type of model from this seller.

Being retired, I have plenty of time to spend on a hobby that I have always wanted to try. The Douglas DC3 is my fourth model plane. And it is the best kit I have attempted yet. Take your time, be as exacting as you can, and you will end up with a very large piece you can be proud of. ( I think youngsters would find it quite frustrating and give up too soon.)

The only flaw I found is that the "laser-cut pieces" need a lot of notch cutting. And the "prop" they include is a joke. Go to a hobby store and buy a couple of good plastic propellers if you want it to look right. I liked the photo on the box of an uncovered frame. So I spray painted it olive drab, did the props in silver, and hung it without the skin. Everyone who sees it comments on how great it looks and that they had no idea on how complex the detail of the frame actually is. (Just a suggestion, buy some Loctite Super Glue. Sets up fast and creates a strong bond!) TAS

Its is a great plane and the plans and instructions are fine. My problem is, not all the parts are included. Half of the parts for the Fin/ Rudder is missing and about a third of the center wing sections are not here. So far that's it but I haven`t started on the fuselage yet. So far I have been able to make my own parts but I don`t think I should have to.

I bought this as a distraction and as an educational tool for my son. These kits require patience to build and require a few specialized tools. It was my hope to involve my 5 year old son but, it is really pretty beyond him, so, he mostly watched. I will get something a little less complicated and that does not require glue or dope.

The delivery was excellent. All the parts arrived as promised. The model is fun to build. It lacks many building details. Previous balsa build experience is required to finish the model.

I haven't purchased this kit or even plan on it, but I would like to pose a question for those who have and are complaining about missing pieces......why haven't you called the manufacture and asked them to send them to you???? Wouldn't that be easier than scratch building???? I really think you should have done that to begin with instead of complaining.....btw, before anyone makes the suggestion....I have no affiliation with Guillows

This is a great old fashioned stick and glue airplane model. It is a great teaching aid for kids to learn patience and following directions. It is a good quality model and was fun to build.

The model seems like it will turn out well. Unfortunately, pieces were missing (the entire rudder section) that I had to make out of scrap.
