Hi David, Wonderful stuff. I like large scale models, i build them myself to 1/4 full size.

What are you going to power it with ?

Keep up the good work. Roy (TASSE).

Hi Roy, Pleased you like the project, its now ready for skinning with very thin Birch ply.
The power, I am considering using the RCV 4 cycle engines which sit correctly in the engine cowlings without sticking out of the side,top or bottom, they look far more realistic, but and its a big but, they are very expensive and this may delay completion or reluctantly I may even have to sell it due to the cost, I am retired and long time married, however we shall see.
Best regards
David

Hi David. I am told that RCV engines tend to over heat but i have never seen one running.
Hiding an engine is always a problem for scale modelers but somehow we find a way.

Dont sell it or you will regret it.

Please keep me informed.

Roy.

Just to encourage you.

Hi Sunderland enthusiasts, I have loaded additional photos as requested, of some early stages of parts of the construction. I will load more details of the wing soon. Watch this space. Remember I have already loaded my photobucket link, address and password in the forum.
Cheers David

Hi to Sunderland enthusiasts. My very large model is now finished and ready for display. I have a set of 94 construction photos and these have been loaded on to a DVD. I will be happy to send a copy to Seawings if requested. I am been asked to display the aircraft at the North of England Model Engineering Show, so a suitable display stand will have to made also I will have the major problem of transportation to Harrogate. Cheers David

Hi David,

Gosh, Yes please! I would love to display that on SEAWINGS and break my 1/72 scale 'rule' for it!

Email me off board and I will advise my postal address and I'll send you something in return.
Best Regards,
