Details
The Short Sunderland Mk.III flying boat proved to be the definitive version of what was RAF Coastal Command’s largest aircraft of the War. Protecting Britain’s shipping lanes from enemy attack, their primary role was U-boat detection, but their unique capabilities were often called upon to rescue downed airmen. On 21 June 1942, Sunderland W3999 took off from RAF Mount Batten to locate the crew of a ditched Vickers Wellington. On reaching the search area, the Sunderland, along with an accompanying Whitley patrol aircraft, were attacked, with the Sunderland taking a number of hits. The crew effected a landing on the open sea, but at the end of its landing run the aircraft was seen to explode and sink beneath the waves, with the loss of all on board.
This tribute to W3999/RB-Y is modelled at 1:72 scale, with a substantial 18½” wingspan and a wealth of authentic detail including: optional undercarriage, crew figures, moveable gun turrets, and rotatable propellers. Limited to just 1,100 worldwide and accompanied with a numbered certificate.
