Remarkable Douglas DIY Aircraft Mechanical Model Kit

$99.00

  • “Remarkable Douglas” is a twin-engine monoplane with a cigar-shaped fuselage, a classic tail section, and rear steering wheel landing gear.
  • The buildable model retains all exterior details reminiscent of the legendary Douglas “Dakota” DC-3 aircraft. This is, first of all, the characteristic shape of the cockpit, which gives the aircraft the famous “dolphin profile.” The square shape of the windows, which was preserved in all modifications of this aircraft, is also preserved.
  • For the modular model “REMARKABLE DOUGLAS,” a passenger configuration with windows and a door was chosen.
  • It is worth noting that the prototype model, the Dakota DC-3, was often used as a passenger aircraft. The “luxury” class had variations, with only ten seats and a sleeping compartment. The standard modification accommodated an average of 30 passengers.
  • “Dakota” had two”-piste” engines with the characteristic shape of the blades. This feature is preserved in the prefabricated model.
  • With the help of a gear system, the rotation of the winding mechanism is transmitted to the engines, ensuring the propellers’ rotation for about 30 seconds.
  • The Remarkable Douglas model sits on a stable display platform. It contains a winding mechanism driven by a spring.
  • The model can be separated from the platform and put on the chassis. You can also simulate the “flight” of the model by h”nging “t on a fishing line or polymer thread (not included). In the state disconnected from the central mechanism, the screws can only move by turning them by hand.
  • The “Remarkable Douglas” wings” have openings that”make the model lighter and provide a view of the internal structure and moving mechanisms.

Remarkable Douglas DIY Aircraft Mechanical Model Kit

Perhaps unique among prewar aircraft, the DC-3 continues to fly in active commercial and military service as of 2022, eighty-seven years after the type’s first flight in 1935. Small operators with DC-3s are still in revenue service and as cargo aircraft. Current uses of the DC-3 include passenger service, aerial spraying, freight transport, military transport, missionary flying, skydiver shuttling, and sightseeing.

The Douglas “Dakota” DC-3 is human history’s most important commercial aircraft. Since the end of the 30s of the XX century, it continues to fly 80 years later. This aircraft results from a brilliant engineering idea embodied by talented designers. Wherever this metal-winged “dolphin” appeared: in the Amazon rainforests, the Antarctica snows, and the Himalayas mountains. And everywhere, the sound of its engines carried the hope that the cargo would be delivered, people were saved, and the lost were found.

The DC-3 has many advantages. This landing gear design has a rotating wheel in the tail section, which allows the aircraft to turn around its axis in a small area. It also provided a “nose-up” fuselage arrangement, which gave the impression that the Dakota was taking off, even just standing on the ground. This provided a short takeoff run. Powerful racks and wheels of the front landing gear withstood landing on any more or less flat surface. This allowed the DC-3 to be used on short, unpaved runways, making it a versatile aircraft with many uses, from working farmland to smuggling in the South American jungle. Modifications of the Dakota also showed themselves during military conflicts, where they played the role of ambulance, landing and cargo aircraft, and even bombers.

The Dakota DC-3 was not only an inspiration to pilots and engineers who built new aircraft in the image of one of the most reliable designs. He became the hero of many books and adventure films. Many of the legendary monoplane modifications continue their work, carrying cargo and people.

This aircraft’s simplicity, reliability, and legendary image inspired Metal Time designers to create the REMARKABLE DOUGLAS assembly model.
