Reminds me of another interesting possibility, what if the Soviet Union purchased the plans Fokker had for a DC-3 based bomber and applied them to a purpose-built bomber version o the Li-2/PS-84?

Basler conversion applied to a Super DC-3?

About 10-15 minutes of Google time seems to indicate no C-117s have been converted.

Did find this list of Basler conversions: https://www.airport-data.com/manuf/Basler.html

Some data is missing but overall it appears they have only used DC-3/C-47/C-53 airframes.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Doing a bit of research and it appears there were not many mods attempted with the Super DC-3.  Jack Conroy put Darts on one and one was converted to the experimental XC-129 and that seems to be that.  Still, I see no reason why a whiffed Basler-converted Super DC-3 couldn't be modeled.

Good idea.

To best of my knowledge Evan, the only 1/72 Super DC-3 / C-119 /R4D-8 conversion is the vacuform from AirModel:

Now does anyone do a 1/72 Basler conversion that can be combined with it?

Basler BT-67 is another tempting build.
