C-47 Skytrain Wooden Mode
Military Mahogany is proud to offer this C-47 wooden model to our series of beautiful hand crafted models. The Douglas C-47 Skytrain or Dakota is a military transport aircraft that was developed from the Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II and remained in front line operations through the 1950s with a few remaining in operation to this day.
The C-47 differed from the civilian DC-3 in numerous modifications that included being fitted with a cargo door and strengthened floor. During World War II, the armed forces of many countries used the C-47 and modified DC-3s for the transport of troops, cargo and wounded. The US Naval designation was R4D.
