DC-4 aircraft were actually a rarity, with less than one hundred built. Far more common was the military version C-54. These served in WWII and, after the end of hostilities, many were sent back into civilian service. Balair-a pilot training group and commercial airline purchased two DC-4s in 1959 and used them for charter flights. Although Balair (now Belair) long ago switched to jets, two are still used by an airline based out of Johannesburg and many more are in use in Canada by Buffalo Airways. Kit features radio compartment with consoles, choice of cargo or passenger door, interior seats, rotating props, detailed engines, and two sets of decals.
