This collectable model represents the C-47 Skytrain. The C-47, the military version of the DC-3, is still in use today, and is one of the most influential aircraft in history. This “Band of Brothers” C-47 is signed by Cpl. Forrest Guth, one of the original 140 members of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. Painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by skilled craftsmen using a wealth of detail, this 1/62-scale model C-47 makes a great gift for any aviation enthusiast or history buff.

The Douglas DC-3 revolutionized the airline industry, offering a combination of efficiency and performance that allowed airlines to make a profit carrying only passengers. Able to cross the nation in 15 hours with three fuel stops, the DC-3 helped popularize airline travel. Powered by Pratt & Whitney Twin Wasp radials, the DC-3 could cruise at 150 mph and carry up to 32 passengers.

With the addition of a strengthened floor and a cargo door, the DC-3 became the C-47 Skytrain, or Dakota as it was known in British service. More than 16,000 DC-3/C-47s were built, and saw service worldwide as cargo haulers, paratroop drop ships, air ambulance and glider tow ships.

This significant aircraft still serves today as a cargo hauler, with some versions being equipped with turboprop engines.
