The C-47 Skytrain was a military transport aircraft developed from the DC-3 airliner. More than 10000 were made in factories across the USA and it became the backbone of the Allied Air Transport efforts. It was used to move men and equipment around the various theatres during WW2 but it also was used by paratroopers, famously over Normandy on D-day and a few months later over Holland during Operation Market Garden.
The kit looks well detailed with engraved panel lines, it also comes with a small fret of photo etch metal parts. Decals are provided for two different aircraft from the USAAF and the Chinese air force.
