2017-01-24 14:18:58I have finished building the DC3 and can confirm it is a highly detailed, well constructed kit. The parts supplied are made from numerous materials, plywood, plastic sheet, die cast metal, thin sheet metal and even flocking material to add the carpets. Details include seats with moving backs, detailed flight deck, a galley to the rear, curtains and two removable sections (nose and passenger cabin roof) so the detail can be seen. The build instructions are easy to follow, with clear pictures added to aid the builder and plenty of willing helpers on the forum for the less experienced builder. Well done Deagostini for bringing this iconic plane to there great collection of models. delboy271155
