Airfix 1/72 C-47A

This is the kit that was released as a new tool in 2014.  The Dakota Mk. III boxing was used but US Markings will be applied and it will be modified to be a C-53D with a single
door on the left, larger than but similar to the airline style door.  C-53's did not have a reinforced cargo floor like the C-47 with its double doors. Out of 406 C-53’s,
159 were C-53D’s.  Another difference the D had was the side mounted seats like the C-47, other C-53’s had row type seats.  Over 10,000 C-47’s were built.
