Dakota/Skytrain glider tow rigs

Recommended Posts

*Apologies if this has been done to death already - have searched and can't seem to find a thread already answering*


If one were idly thinking about doing a Dakota/Skytrain and Hadrian or Horsa posed together what did the rigs and attachment points look like in detail? I've done an online trawl but the pictures are all a bit vague. 


Is anyone on here an expert or able to recommend a resource?

Here's the C-47 end, under the fin, which is why a C-47 doesn't have the DC-3 tailcone tapering off to a point.

That's the later version, the earlier installation retained the tailcone and had the tow hitch mounted externally on the port side.
