HM Douglas C-47 Skytrain USAAF 53rd TCS "Sky King" HL1305
Got this cute little plane into my collection:
Douglas C-47 Skytrain
USAAF 53rd TCS
#42-32832, "Sky King"
Item: HL1305 (1:200 Scale)
Douglas C-47-DL 42-32832 was delivered to the USAAF on February 11, 1943 and assigned to the 53rd Troop Carrier Squadron. On May 4, 1943 42-32832 was one of 13 C-47s ordered to be ferried across the Atlantic Ocean to North Africa. After arriving in North Africa Lt. Donald King became the pilot of this aircraft for the duration of WWII. 42-32832 made paratroop drops, glider missions, flown supplies in and wounded out, it was also involved in D-Day drops and returned to the U.S. in July 1945.
It's a tiny compared to the other 1:200 scaled models, length around 3.75" and it is 5.75" wide. I do like it, here's some pictures:
