The model shown has a passenger door, not the larger freight door. That makes it a C-53. Deicer boots on the leading edges of the wings, horizontal stabilizers and vertical tail were standard on WWII C-53/C47s but this model does not have them.

Is this a model of a genuine WWII aircraft or of one post war as a heritage flight aircraft?
