    DC3_AlanRose_1.JPG Alan Rose’s magnificent DC-3 ‘trophy’ must rank as the most well-known DC-3 paper model, and at a scale of 1:15 nearly the largest.

    I was given permission by Alan Rose to design and add on the rear portion, and this I designed with a number of adaptations to the wing structure. The addition of extended landing gear, and replacement of the motors, both with the excellent ones designed by Fly Model C-47 “Sky Train” of Polish modelers, as well as the addition of more realistic tyres I designed, completes the model.

    Thanks are due to Alan Rose for permitting me to use the basis of his model, as well as to Ruben Martinez who provided me with valuable information for the project.
