The Dakota DC-3 was the legendary workhorse of the skies during the 1930-50s. Some of the Dakota Dc-3 are still flying in far-flung places like the Amazon and the Gobi Desert. It’s taken us a couple years, but we pulled off a major feat. Our Dakota DC-3 Model Airplane is the first limited edition production of a hand-built model in aluminum. Each Dakota DC-3 Model Airplane is complete with etched metal sheets and rivets. Windows, extreme engine detail, propellers, landing gear, ailerons. Inspect... Admire!
