Not a beginners model!
on February 16, 2014
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
