Revell-Monogram 1/48 scale
Douglas C-47B Skytrain

Douglas C-47B Skytrain


Description

 

The C-47 Skytrain was one of the most outstanding military aircraft in the world from which it began its brilliant career during World War II. It emerged as the commercial DC-3 and was commissioned during the war to play various roles as a freighter and designated C-47 and gaining several changes. The Brazilian Air Force was one of the countless air forces to order it, which was still in 1944 and used 88 units until 1983 in cargo, passenger, VIP and radar calibration functions.

 

 

This model was initially launched in the USA in 1978 by Monogram and was relaunched a few times later in different marking schemes. It is easy to assemble, reminiscent of the C-47 models on 1/72. It comes with an option to do with the cargo doors open which I left for more detail. I ended up making the small open door that was on the left side of the cabin which, due to the scale of the model, should have come as a separate piece.

The initial three specimens of the Brazilian Air Force came in the standard USAAF painting, in dorsal olive drab colors with spots on the edges of the flat parts in medium green. And its ventral parts in neutral gray.
