Product Details


When the Douglas DC-3 debuted in 1935, it marked a milestone in commercial aviation. Suddenly, flying was popular and practical. Production ended just eleven years later, but the DC-3 lives on in this expertly engineered kit. If you’ve never built scale or flown a twin, it’s a great introduction!


  • Excellent flying characteristics; because of the engine angle and modified aerodynamics, this kit flies extremely well, even on one engine. (Most models of the DC-3 will go inverted and crash)
  • Precision-formed ABS tail cone, engine nacelles, wing fairings, and cockpit top.
  • An interlocking fuselage frame builds flat on the plans and the large round fuselage requires very little carving or shaping.
  • Can be built with split-flaps and the scale aerodynamic "Balance Tab" rudder which uses the air deflection to help turn the plane.
  • Includes Eastern Air Lines and Optional Military C-47 Decals
