This is the TOP FLITE DOUGLAS DC-3 Twin-Engine 1/14 Sport Scale Airplane. The Golden Era of Aviation Eastern Air Lines replica is IMAA Legal with a fully-sheeted fuselage and wingspan of 82.5. The original airplane was designed for commercial passenger travel, and some still fly today. Makes a good 3rd or 4th kit to assemble for intermediate to advanced builders. This is a great introduction into building and flying a scale twin-engined kit. COMMENTS: Two .30 OS Max Wankel engines fit very scale-like into the nacelles and produce realistic sound. Two .52 OS Max Surpass engines work well with the DC-3 also. The Top Flite DC-3 is IMAA Legal in size, but make sure to use servos with at least 45 oz-in torque to meet IMAA requirements. Standard servos may be used instead of higher torque servos if DC-3 is not built IMAA legal and also if retract servo is relocated. Flaps: Split-Flaps are recommended and very effective for landing the DC-3. Retracts: Top Flite Retracts (TOPQ8276), Air Control Unit (ROBQ2302), Hand Pump (ROBQ2363), 4-40 threaded rod (GPMQ3743), Steel clevises (GPMQ3794), 3+ wheels, Nylon ball link (GPMQ3842), Wheel collars (GPMQ4308), Blind Nuts GPMQ3324, Screws (DUBQ3127), and Two #4x+(not carried) (NOTE: See the retract identification on how to install these.) * * You MUST use the Top Flite retracts if you want to install retracts. No other retracts will fit. * * Detail: To get the scale Zinc-Chromate color inside flaps and wheel wells, mix and brush on Yellow and Blue LusterKote. If building the C-47 military version, modeler will need colors like Flat Tan (TOPQ0516) or Flat Dove Gray (TOPQ0511) and other camouflage colors. The military markings are included with kit.

Sheet DC3TD04 includes the correct N #s, in single blue, not 3 color, as the actual aircraft did not have the 3 color shadowing on the N #. NOTE: In the kit is a big Eastern Airlines decal. It goes on the left wing on top. Per E.L.(R&D) JCT 1/16/02 updt jxs 5/28/04
