A military transport aircraft developed from the Douglas DC-3, the C-47 Skytrain (or Dakota) was used extensively by the Allies during World War II. It also saw action during the Berlin Airlift, transporting supplies into the blockaded German city. The "Camel Caravan to Berlin," in late October 1948, delivered supplies including candy and a young camel named Clarence — the 86th Fighter Group had chosen the animal as its mascot — to the children of Berlin in a gesture of goodwill during the holiday season.
A Hobby Master replica of the "Camel Caravan to Berlin," this 1/72 scale, die cast model features that aircraft's signature gray paint scheme, markings, and camel artwork, simulated cabin and cockpit windows, detailed radial engines, rotating propellers, optional-position landing gear, and a display stand. Measures approximately 3¾" long with a 5¾" wingspan.
