Product Details


Originally called the King Beaver, the DHC-3 Otter was introduced two years after making its first flight in December 1951. Bearing the same configuration as the Beaver aircraft, the Otter had a much longer and heavier airframe and with greater wingspan. Its main cabin could seat 10 to 11 persons, and much like the Beaver, it can also be fitted with floats and skis. This amphibious DHC3 floatplane was famous for its outstanding rate of climb and Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities. It is for this reason that during its time, the de Havilland Otter was also the most commonly used airframe for regional routes, military paratroop operations, as well as short-haul cargo delivery. Among the military operators of this De Havilland airplane are the Royal Air Forces of Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Cambodia, Norway, and United Kingdom, as well as the Air Forces of many other countries.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
