Considered to be the single most important aircraft in the history of air transportation, the DC-3 first flew in 1935. Douglas Aircraft built it as a replacement for the smaller DC-2. Its 180 MPH cruising speed made it the fastest of its day, and carried 11 more passengers than the Boeing 247. By 1938, 80 percent of all American commercial airline traffic was carried on DC-3ís. During World War 2, the military conversion of the DC-3, the C-47 was used by the thousands in every theatre of the war. After the war, many of the surplus C-47ís were converted back to civilian service.

Series 800 - Super Detailed Scale Balsa Airplane Models

Superb, Super Detailed Scale Models
Display and Flying Models

Beautiful large balsa wood airplane models-from the famous Stearman PT-17 trainer to the history making Spirit of St. Louis. Our latest release the Douglas DC-3. This model can also be built as a C-47; decals and instructions to build either model are included. Each model is a small but faithful replica of an airplane widely known for deeds in wartime or, like the Cessna Skyhawk, for its present day popularity. Here is toy airplane model building worthy of the time and effort-you would be hard pressed to find a finer kit available. The Camel, Skyhawk, PT-17 and Spirit of St. Louis are designed for .049 to .15 U-Control, .049 gas and rubber powered free flight. The B-25 is for .020 to .049 U-Control or display. The historic DC-3 is designed to be built as a Build 'n Show display model. Kits contain best quality materials and instructions that have made Guillow balsa airplane kits the "Best in Balsa". Note: The fuselages of the Camel, PT-17, Spirit of St. Louis and Skyhawk are large enough to take simple R/C equipment - NO diagrams or instructions included or available.

This is a "Stick & Tissue" kit and not for children under 14, These kits requires hours of work to complete and are a great way to spend the odd hour relaxing.
If you flip through the range you will find more stunning results of customer's completed models.

"I can say that Guillows produce the simplest kits (Series 600, 700and 900) which are ideal for beginners, say aged 10 onwards, and take between 12 and 16 hours to build, and with a little care can be flown successfully with the rubber motor provided. I think it is a great creative hobby and becomes more interesting and challenging as you progress through the series".

As a retailer, we can't think of a better recommendation than that of one of our own customers. Barrie is one of our veteran builders and below we show the result from this kit and others (by clicking on the Link). We quote with Barrie's permission.

Barrie goes on to say, "It must be difficult to try and encourage new customers to this kind of hobby especially when only specialist hobby shops sell Guillows kits. I started constructing balsa planes in the late 1940's and carried on through most of the 1950's. In those days I used Kiel-Kraft mainly. For many youngsters then, balsa modelling was almost as popular as Meccano. How times change!"

Other examples of completed models can be seen by clicking on 2003, 1403, 410, 403, 801, 804,

And a work in progress 2002 This model was started in late summer 2011 We will show the progress made as we receive updates until it is completed.
