: The fabulous Boeing Model 314 is now in my
: CLASSIC AIRSHIPS shop in a choice of
: scales: 1/1250th and 1/1200th, 1/700th and
: 1/600th, 1/285th.
: In 1/1250th I have opted once again to
: provide a three piece set including the
: complete, "in flight" model, a
: separate beaching trolley and a waterline
: model. The waterline model features open
: doors and hatches - but you'll need your
: glasses on to see them!
: My range of flying boats already includes
: the Dornier DoX, the Short Empire, the
: Sikorsky S42 and the Martin JRM1 Mars.
: Here is the set in "Frosted Extreme
: Detail" plastic...
: The Boeing B-314 clipper is widely regarded
: at the summit of flying boat technology. It
: inaugurated the world’s first transatlantic
: heavier-than-air service, and carried
: passengers and cargo around the globe in the
: 1930’s and 1940’s.
: Large, luxurious, and reliable — and with
: an astounding range of 3,500 statute miles —
: the B-314 made intercontinental passenger
: airline service a practical reality.
: ... extract from clipperflyingboats.com
: which is essential reading for anyone
: interested in flying boats and in
: particular, the Pan Am fleet.
: Happy modelling everyone!
