Our Price: $6.00

After 42 years of service, in 2012 the USFS retired this 69 year-old DC-3 from its fleet.  Built in 1943, this DC-3 served (as a C-47) with the 9th Air Force in Belgium and The Netherlands in World War 2.  After WW2, it served with the FAA as N100Z in Alaska up until 1970 where it became the third DC-3 acquired by the USFS.  In 1991, N100Z was converted to the present BT-67 configuration and re-registered as N142Z.  Use this decal with the Welsh Models resin BT-67 kit.
"Always" B-26 Tanker 59
1:72 "Always" B-26 Tanker 59
Our Price: $6.00

Tanker 59 along with its sister ship Tanker 57 were owned and flown by Lynch Air Tankers for the 1989 Steven Spielberg movie Always.  This Douglas TB-26C was bit of an odd duck being a dual control B-26 with a clear nose.  The military s/n 44-35371 lists it as a standard clear nosed B-26C.  At some point it was converted to a dual control aircraft. That change would have blocked any access to the nose compartment from the cockpit. The only access would have been from the ground through the hatch in the bottom of the nose.  In addition to the installation of the retardant tanks and doors, the outboard leading edges of the wings have been extended and drooped to improve slow speed handling.  The aircraft is currently owned by the Marine Aviation Museum in Houston, TX.
