Koolhoven 100 Ton Vliegboot
The Netherlands, 1939 - In 1932
Frederick Koolhoven foresaw the potential value of the commercial
flying boat and started to give shape to his vision. At the end
of the 30's his ideas resulted in a side and front view of an obviously
enormous flying boat, projected with four engines driving two big
propellers. The design could easily have competed with the flying
boats Boeing, Sikorsky and Consolidated had in mind during that
short era before the second World War.
As no measurements were given in the design drawings, the size was deducted from several parameters, such as the number of passengers mr. Koolhoven had in mind, the number of windows, etc. Thus it is modeled on the basis of an estimated wingspan of 226.4 feet / 69 metres and called: the OceanLiner.
The model is cast in polyurethane and has no transparent fenestration.
|Span||13.6 inch / 34,5 cm.|
|Livery||all silver with OceanLiner logo.|
