DC-3/C-47 plans?

Is the DC-3 a kit or scratch build?

Your plane looks great! I imagine it's fairly durable as well with garbage can construction.

they're not really different actually
the C-47 most common military version of the civilian DC-3 indeed
there's many variations, but they all share the same airframe
different motors, different interior, electrics, gun mounts, etc, some even without motors (its a glider airframe so it flies well without any motor)

yours is a DC-3 since no military paint scheme :P
