The wingspan was some 35 meters, that is approximately two meters (six feet) more than B-17 . 

Here are the instructions.

And the last paint scheme plane took part in the Berlin Airlift, der Berliner Luftbrücke back in 1948. As a Berliner, that to me is some extra motivation.

That’s amazing that someone has done a Sunderland, always coveted the original Airfix one but never bought or built it.

its not my scale either wow very tempted, I’ll wait for some reviews I think.....

I've never quite figured out the timidness of kit manufacturers regarding this one. This is one of the world's great aircraft of all time, and would be amazing even in 1/48.

Tom Probert is building a vac 1/32 one on TOS. It's a sizable beasty, that's for sure.
