Dc-3 Any One Know Where I Can Find?

Discussion in 'Aircraft & Aviation' started by Bionic Modeler, Aug 11, 2007.

  1. Looking for a DC-3. I have always loved that airplane. I flew on one when I when into the Navy in 1965. One of my first experiences flying. Scared the crap out of me. But I later learned to love it. I ended up a crewmember on a P-2 Neptune and logged 1200 hrs.

    Probably not what you're after, but Maly Modelarz did an IL-2 Cab years ago. That's the Russian version of the DC-3. Krys might be able to find a copy for you. Paper Model Store

    Fiddlers-Green, basic but DC3 shaped...

    I'd love to see one of these as well. The DC-3 was such a classic, and still in use today in some places hauling cargo. Hard to believe a detailed model has not been done. It would not be for lack of research materials!

    Fly Models Release

    The DC-3/C-47 yearning seems to be a recurring theme. Fly Models had one out on the market around ten years ago and hasn't refreshed the design nor reintroduced it since (might be a clue as to how well the sales went). Below is a shot from a build of this model. Maybe it's time to get serious about it...,


    P.S. Model Card put out a C-47 "Spooky" gunship model sometime in the same period. If I remember correctly it was shown on the cover being attacked by Japanese Zeros...,

  6. Yaniv was working on one before the forum made the move...
    I wonder what is happening to that one...
    Cheers, Billyaussie

    There were also versions made by the Austrian company Geli. They did a Martinair-version. Maybe on Ebay...
    WilhelshavenerBogen has a Lufthansa-version. Still available, I believe

    FG also has a Navy R4D-5L version of the C-47, and it comes with a black and white that you can do up in any paint scheme you want.

    Best available C47

    Hey, hey - if you will be satisfied with the best available C-47 out there, write a nice letter to Marco & Yvonne Ramm at Modelshop24 in Germany. Here's the page with a mail form.


    They still carry the Fly Model C47, and if you're quick you'll get it for only 16 euros + postage (30 percent discount until 19 August). They accept PayPal. But write first in order to ascertain postage & handling (which is very reasonable for Europe, so if they accept your business, I'm sure they'll make the best available deal for you).

    Marco & Yvonne who run the Modelshop24 only deliver to Germany and Austria. But if you write nicely, they might be able to cook something up. Doesn't hurt to ask.

    i must found the time to make my c47 :(

  14. Yes I like it very much. When will it be available. I bought Fiddler's version but I feel it is a bit oversimplified. Yours looks better. Is it done yet?
  15. Very nice but too expensive. I am living on disablity can't afford these expensive models. Not to say they aren't worth it. I feel the designers have a right to charge whatever they feel.
    I'm not whining just facing facts. I depend on that generous group of designers who offer their work free so guys like me can do this without breaking the bank.

    Geli's Martinair DC-3 is one of the nicest kits Geli made--very accurate and very impressive. PMI might have it.
