I saw the kit in Dough Feeney's house, when he had ID models, and i was impressed by the amount of styrene plastic involved, and never thought it would be possible to create a Sunderland with what you had to play with, but this is amazing, a real gem, absolutely a winner!!!

 

Jack.....

Thanks, Jack. I met Doug at a model show many years ago and he was working on one of his 1/32nd B-17 vacs. He'd scratch built all of the interior from plastic card and the like and I was blown away by what he'd done. I distinctly remember him saying that he gave the modeller the blank canvass and it then it is up to them make their masterpiece. I still quote him regularly to this day and it holds so true for this type of model. It was indeed Doug himself who inspired me to get into vacforms, and shortly after I bought one of his 1/32nd B-25s. I made a bit of a fist of it, but it certainly was a first step into a dark and mysterious world :)

Fantastic work. Quite a journey, and a very nice result.

Thank you. And, yes - a journey indeed. Made a little longer by the unscheduled first flight from the kitchen table, but it was certainly a couple of years well spent in modelling terms.

OMG this is insane. The Sunderland has always been one of my favourites like allot of flying boats but i never thought anything bigger than... well like 1/72 was possible. i'd need to upgrade to a 4 bedroom house for that baby. very satisfying for sure to work from the basic vac kit to this.

Tom to add to the positive comments of the collective, this build is superlative. To take a blank canvas in such a way and turn it into this beautiful build is beyond amazing. 

 

Congratulations on completing this, a showstopper for sure.

Congrats with such a spektacular result of this project !!

 

Every  vac project of yours is a 'must see', 'must follow' and a 'must admire' thing for me. And this is just as fantastic as the others - I know cause I've been on a ID (tigger) quest some years ago with a result less stellar than yours (but never the less very rewarding).

 

Remarkable !
