It's beautifull to have all those dakota's together. Recently I became owner of the Monogram 1/48 Eastern Airlines DC-3. Although the fit is not perfect it's my second DC-3 in the same 1/48 scale. My first one is discolored, black decals so I have to strip it, and refurbisch it again. It should be nice to have more decals in the 1/48 scale. May-be it's possible that one of the members could write an article about building this DC-3?
