Limited edition Ertl Collectibles Prestige Series Military U.S. Navy Chuting Stars Douglas DC-3/C-47 replica airplane. Printed on the plane is "US Navy," "Chuting Stars," and "50762." This plane is a fully assembled highly detailed, 1:72 scale (wing span of 15-3/4" x 10-1/2" fuselage), has retractable landing gear, rotating propellers, opening passenger/cargo door, recessed panel detail, tampo graphics and a die cast metal stand to display the plane as if it was "in flight." The color of this plane is blue with yellow trim. One of the most attractive military planes, a R4D was assigned to the US Navy Chuting Stars parachute team and was painted like the famed Blue Angel aerial display team aircraft. This plane was mfd in 1995 and is new in mint condition in the original unopened mint box. This is a very nice plane that is larger and heavier than most model planes and would be a great addition to a collection. It is one of 7 military inspired DC-3 replicas made by Ertl. The DC-3 had fame in the military as well as in passenger and freight assignments. All branches of the armed forces used them during and after WWII. The DC-3 was called a C-47 and used as a military transport (British RAF called them a Dakota). The plane also earned the generic nickname Gooney Bird. All 7 of the planes in the series carry official marking of specific aircraft from WWII to the Vietnam War era.
