1/72 681 Airfix Short Sunderland III
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
1960s Type 3 logo 'Porcupine.' The box is worn, but the kit has never been started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete and includes decals and instructions. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; its large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation.
