the simple answer is the 'D' is a larger and newer version.wing strut is lower in the cabin, resulting in the aircraft fuselage being made taller (look at a picture and notice the 'roof' line is much higher in the 'D' than the 'C'. all of this was done to make the 1900 more comfortable for the passenger.some say the 'C' is nicer looking as she doesn't have the 'D's humped back.see also older discussion -http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...86705&mode=full
