Douglas C-47 Skytrain

Originally posted by Wikipedia:
The Douglas C-47 Skytrain or Dakota (RAF, RAAF and RNZAF designation) is a military transport aircraft developed from the civilian Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II and remained in front-line service with various military operators for many years.


This is my 1:1 scale Stormworks rendition of the Douglas C-47 Skytrain. I put lot of effort into making the exterior of it look as authentic as possible to the real life counterpart, and I'm very happy with how it turned out. My goal was making it look as realistic as possible, while still having a lot of playability. It's cockpit is built using photos of the real C-47 cockpit, and is about 75% authentic in terms of looks and gauge placement. I managed to fit in most of the buttons that are present on the real life counterpart's overhead panel, but due to Stormworks restrictions I couldn't replicate the overhead panel placement. Since my goal was keeping it simple and easy to use, I've simplified It's control and flight systems. I've also added some touches of my own to It's interior.

I sincerely hope you enjoy playing with this aircraft as much as I enjoyed building it.
