The 72” Sunderland follows a similar design philosophy as both the Boeing B-17 and the Avro Lancaster. The plan features fully built up construction using balsa and plywood. The fuselage is slab sided structure with a rolled balsa top and the hull made from cross sheeted the underside. The use of a fuselage jig will help the fuselage build. The wings are a built-up structure of ribs over a main spar and balsa sheeted. The tailplane and fin are both constructed from solid sheet balsa.
The prototype was fitted four 200watt brushless motors and used a 2000mah Lipo battery pack per motor.
The model although not flown off water should be able to without too much fuss. The prototype had no undercarriage fitted and had sufficient power to take off from grass, although both long or wet short grass will aid take off.

The plan is full-size on two sheets

The VAC form set includes the cockpit canopy, forward, upper and rear turrets and four radial cowls.

The CNC pack contains all the fuselage formers, wing seats, hull spine, wing ribs and the nacelle structures
