Here's another approach for the mule/tractor: see if you can find the make/model of one used at an airport/airfield that the actual plane visited. As long as the right tow bar for the plane is available (and they'd probably carry it on the plane), any mule/tractor capable of towing that size of plane would be used.

Struts1 is right though - a scale mule would have a tough time pulling the plane on a grass field. But it'll look cool!

Along with awaiting pics or vid of this one taking flight think it would be great to see a separate build thread.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

Re: 1/11th Scale DC3 and need advice and help.


The basics:
•Owner: Buffalo Airways Ltd.
•Model: C-47A-15-DK
•Ident.: C-FDTH
•Squadron Code: KG479
•Number: 42-92755
•c/n: 12591
•Certificate of Reg.: 1998-5-12

C-FDTHs story starts end of february 1944 as 42-92755 as an USAAF-plane in Oklahoma City. In 1944 she started serving as a Dakota lll for the RCAF (KG479) with a RAF training team, based in Canada. In 1946 the plane was sold to Trans Canada Airlines as CF-TEB, after she was stored for almost two years.

In January 1961, the Dak was transferred to the Department of Transport as a DC3-A, with the identification CF-DTH. After that she was registered as C-„FDTH“ for the first time in 1976. From that year on, she flew for the Canadian Coast Guards until 1996. Two years later, the plane was purchased by Buffalo Airways, Hay River. She is still stored in Red Deer, Alberta and has the identification „C-FBAE“ now
