Boeing 314






A model I did for fun back in 2009, Vray render.
Oh yes, I am a flying boat “aficionado”.

Cheers

Outstanding model! Like many others, I too am a 314 fan.

Thanks, here is another scene obtained from the model

Very good

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)


The wing profile was just eyeballed from the 3 views. I can´t see how this plane would fit in a soaring simulator as it is not a gilder…

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.

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.
