321 Roden Fairchild C-119C Boxcar 1:144

American  transport aircraft derived in 1947 from one of the lesser known transports of the WW2 era, the C-82 Packet.  The plane had a somewhat unusual configuration- a fuselage in the centre which acted as the cargo compartment, and two long booms which began with the power units and ended with the tail assembly.  The aircraft was widely used by the U.S. Air Force, and also by the air forces of France, India and other countries.  With the advent of the more modern C-130 it began to  be relegated to a secondary role, and in the late 1960s was finally withdrawn from military service in the United States.
