    Douglas DC-3

    created by Ssorg on 2012.05.23

    Now at halfway to 10,000 it's a proper time to do the same thing as I've already done with my Titanic project, that is, to improve this project concept by presenting a new alternative design proposal for you and LEGO to consider.
    This design is basically the same as my Buffalo Airways DC-3 model, so please check out that project to see how this particular design does as a REAL MODEL!
    And having myself built and handled both these DC-3 models I can GUARANTEE that this somewhat smaller version is MUCH BETTER in many ways - and a more realistic concept to succeed in the final CUUSOO Review! :)
    Please see more info & images below!

    As for the original BIG model, here you can find MORE PHOTOS showing ALL details and some bits of fun!
    In this VIDEO you can see the landing gear system in operation - in the smaller version it works just the same way!!

    Here's some examples of minifigs which could come with a set like this:

    The original big model is around 2,500 pieces - set like that could cost $150-180!
    Yet the new BETTER design is around 1,350 pieces, meaning a probable price range of some $85-115.
    HOWEVER, everyone please keep in mind that with every CUUSOO project the final design is up to LEGO, and the price is then determined by the final product!

    Congratulations on 5,000 Supporters!

    Just like the real thing, this project is a workhorse that keeps on performing. Halfway is a big milestone, congratulations!

    We like your updated model, it keeps the essence of your proposal while including some thoughtful design changes. Gray is a good color; while the chrome in your first model would be nice on such a beautiful plane, it wouldn't be possible for us to produce a set with so many chrome elements.

    Best of luck as you chart a course for 10,000 supporters. Be sure to stop and re-fuel along the way!

    This is a really brilliant model of a DC-3, one of the most recognizable airplanes from the 20th century. You've captured all of the little details into something that looks like it would make a great display model.

    We wish you good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
