Details

Considered to be the single most important aircraft in the history of air transportation, the DC-3 first flew in 1935. Douglas Aircraft built it as a replacement for the smaller DC-2. Its 180 MPH cruising speed made it the fastest of its day, and carried 11 more passengers than the Boeing 247. By 1938, 80 percent of all American commercial airline traffic was carried on DC-3’s. During World War 2, the military conversion of the DC-3, the C-47 was used by the thousands in every theatre of the war. After the war, many of the surplus C-47’s were converted back to civilian service.

Guillow was founded in 1926 by a World War 1 US Navy aviator and is the world's largest manufacturer of balsa wood model airplane kits. They have an enviable reputation for producing quality kits with excellent building instructions and plans.

The Guillow's 800 Series is a range of beautiful large scale balsa models, from the famous Stearman PT-17 trainer to the history making Spirit of St. Louis. Their latest release, the DC-3, can also be built as a C-47 and decals & instructions to build either model are included. Each model is a small but faithful replica of an airplane widely known for deeds in wartime or, like the Cessna Skyhawk, for its present day popularity. Here is model building worthy of the time and effort, you would be hard pressed to find a finer kit available. Scale models as only Guillow makes them, kits contain the best quality materials and instructions that have made Guillow kits the "Best in Balsa".

A great kit representing excellent value for money and many hours of fun!
