A model I did for fun back in 2009, Vray render.
Oh yes, I am a flying boat “aficionado”.
Outstanding model! Like many others, I too am a 314 fan.
Beautiful! I’m actually reading the Ken Follet “Noche sobre las aguas”
And I was hoping to make this awesome airplane.
Are you using the correct airfoil for the main wing?
And what are you doing with this asset? I wish to convert it to a game object and include it into my Flight Soaring Simulator.
Thanks, among many, a great read on flying boats is this one (non-fiction)
At the root is this one
and at the tip of the wings is this one
At the tip add 2° degrees of “twist”. In other words, rotate the NACA 0010 airfoil at the tip anticlockwise so that the leading edge is up. This prevent the Plane to stall at the tip and increase performance. Helps visual quality of the 3D build.
For the tail (horizontal and vertical airfoil) use only one NACA. Just scale the 0010 to make it thicker if needed.
I can´t see how this plane would fit in a soaring simulator as it is not a gilder…
Some pilots start soaring and later became commercial pilots. I will try to give them tasks as jobs (If I’m able to do so). Or there are some Peel Z-1 that need an environment where it makes sense making low pass (It can feet well). As you wish.
