NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a 1/72 C-47 Dakota Aircraft Kit from Italeri.

The DC-3 is one of the most famous aircraft in the history of aviation. Its
introduction in the 1930's revolutionised air travel and made it possible for
even the average person to afford to fly. When WWII began in 1939, the DC-3
was quickly adapted for military use and pressed into service as the C-47, also
known as the "Skytrain." The C-47 was used by all the Allied nations during
the war and continued in service long afterward. Eventually, some C-47's were
even converted to heavily armed gunships and used in Vietnam.
