Yes, the particular bird you have painted there, built 1943, has a stair door similar in type - and shape of door - to the R4D-6, but within her C-47 door origins. You could paint on the bigger doors and use the R4D-6 base to have the correct stair door, but then you would have the wrong intakes on your 1830-92s, an astrodome, etc. etc. I bit the bullet and went this route for my recent SAA repaint as we needed it ready in time for a show, and anyway the SAA 'plane has the R4D's larger intakes so at least that was correct; but your own option is go that route or to hang on for the C-47 passenger model and do without the stair door.Tough, isn't it. There were/are so many variations of the C-47/DC-3 that no matter how many models Jan were to produce, he could never get it right for every aircraft out there.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo.jpg
