This Beautiful Custom LEGO Douglas DC-3 is a Classic

There are two kinds of LEGO kits that I have always liked. I go for anything with wheels, like the slick new LEGO Corvette ZR-1, and also anything with wings. The cool part about LEGO aircraft is that you can pretend to fly them, then drop your plane and watch it explode. LEGO builder Vaionaut’s detailed DC-3 model looks way too nice to smash, though.

His custom Bavaria DC-3 aircraft is based on an earlier design that he tweaked for more accuracy and greater stability than the original. It features compound curves for the fuselage and a German flag on the tail that is made from bricks. The builder even made a suitably retro service truck to go along with it. This is a truly beautiful LEGO build. Great work, Vaionaut!
