Full Description

A 1:5 scale (112″ span) electric twin ‘feederliner’ for inexpensive outrunner motors and 5-function R/C. Construction is all wood from the three very large and well-detailed plan sheets and details split flaps. Designed by Robin Fowler, this plan builds into an impressive 112” (2845mm) span 1/5th scale model of the elegant pre-war Percival Q.6 Petrel airliner and military communications aircraft. The 3-sheet plan includes full details of installing elevators, ailerons, rudder, flaps, motors and fixed undercarriage.

Note that this plan illustrates the fixed-undercarriage version. Some Q.6’s were built with retractable undercarriage. The model was designed to be powered by an 8000mAh 3S LiPo battery driving a pair of TowerPro 3520-670 rpm/V electric motors.

The full size: The Percival Q.6 was designed as a civil transport aircraft and first flew in 1937. A small number of the 27 aircraft built were exported, but the rest were registered in the UK, with 7 being purchased for use by the RAF and RN as a communications aircraft and named Petrel. During WWII all but one of the UK civil registered Q.6’s were also requisitioned for military use. After the war the Q.6’s and Petrels were sold to civilian buyers and were used by small airlines, as executive transports and by private pilots. Today only one Q.6 survives, which is undergoing restoration to flying condition. Note that this plan illustrates the fixed-undercarriage version. Some Q.6’s were built with retractable undercarriage.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.

What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
