Textures only for the default Douglas DC3 in Western Airlines livery, circa 1949. The plane pictured was originally USAAF C-53 Skytrooper, and was obtained by Western Airlines on August 1, 1949. By Dale De Luca.

I should point out that this repaint is not totally accurate. The default DC3 does not have both right and left wing bmps nor does it have both right and left side rudder bmps therefore it is not possible to add serial numbers or airline logo on the wings or rudder. The livery is accurate in other respects. I hope you enjoy my repaint.
