The DC3 has earned the epithet “Workhorse of the Skies”. Thousands were produced from the end of WWII into the 1950s by the Douglas Aircraft works. Military, civilian, government, private, you name it. Utterly reliable. Even now it’s possible to find them flying from remote airports, landing on the tightest strips. Legendary and nostalgic. Aluminum, riveted propellers, noisy, but also safe and familiar.
The legendary workhorse of the skies during the 1930-50s.Some are still flying in far-flung places like the Amazon and the Gobi Desert. It’s taken us a couple years, but we pulled off a major feat. The first limited edition production of a hand-built model in aluminum. Complete with etched metal sheets and rivets. Windows, extreme engine detail, propellers, landing gear, ailerons. Inspect… Admire!
