Douglas DC-3 Diecast Model
Canadian Pacific Air Lines, CF-CPY, 1940s

1:200 Scale   Length   Width
Douglas DC-3   3.75"   5.75"

CF-CPY was manufactured by Douglas as a C-47 BuNo. 41-18540 and delivered to the USAAF on August 28 1942, loaned to the Soviet Air Force for a few months. It arrived with the 10th AF in India in April 1943 and in June 1943 was involved in a mid-air accident causing severe damage writing it off. The aircraft was bought and repaired and on December 11, 1945 was registered as CF-CPY with Canadian Pacific Airlines as # 175. The aircraft now sits on a pedestal in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada as the "World’s Largest Wind Vane".

Douglas DC-3

Designed to meet an American Airlines requirement for an enlarged version of the DC-2, the DC-3 was first flown on December 17th, 1935. Capable of carrying 24 passengers at a cruising speed of 180 mph, the DC-3's speed and long range revolutionized commercial air travel in the 1930s and 40s, when it carried 90 percent of the world's air travelers. Early DC-3s used Wright R-1820 Cyclone engines, but Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp Radials were fitted to later versions; these engines had better single engine performance and allowed the DC-3 to fly at higher altitudes.
