This is the Short kit for the ByLoudDesign Boeing B314 Clipper. This short kit consists of a complete set of laser cut balsa and plywood formers and ribs as laid out on the plans which will enable the construction of this amazing model. 

 

The giant scale Boeing B314 Clipper is 1/11th scale and is designed with plug in wings and a one piece fuselage. This is a very large model aircraft. The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques used make the construction of this model extremely simple. This model is easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. Composite cowls for this model are also available through HOLK RC.

 

The Boeing B314 Clipper was an American long-range flying boat produced by Boeing between 1938 and 1941. At the time it was one of the largest aircraft flying. It had a range to cross the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Tweve clippers in total were built, nine of which served with Pan Am airlines. Sadly none of the twelve B314 aircraft survived past 1951. All 12 were scrapped, used for parts or written off. There is a life size B314 mockup at the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, Foynes, Ireland. The museum is at the original transatlantic flying boat terminus.
