The C-47 Skytrain was produced by the Douglas Aircraft Company and is considered as the best transport aircraft in the Second World War. Initially, it was intended as a civilian passenger airplane in the DC-3 variant which began its operations during the 1930s, setting a new benchmark of performance for the rest of the commercial aircrafts at that time. Eventually, it served various roles such as transporting solid cargo to parachute infantry, serving as gunships during the Vietnam War, carrying paratroopers to France on D-Day, bringing supplies to Berlin during the early stages of the Berlin Airlift, and re-supplying Bastogne in the Battle of the Bulge.
This airplane scale model of the C-47 plane is smothered with the standard military olive drab along with the distinct stripes that were used by the Allied aircraft in the latter years of WWII as a way to thwart friendly fire incidents. With its carefully designed character, it makes a must-have item for any authentic collector or aviation enthusiast. Have one today and become an instant fan of this remarkable product.
