This superbly detailed 64” span model of the famous Vickers Wellington ‘Wimpy’ WWII torpedo bomber is designed by Chris Golds and suits two 130W 900Kv in-runner brushless motors with two 40A ESCs and a single 4s 4000mAh LiPo. The model features flaps and retracting undercarriage, with a flying weight of around 2.85 kg.
The detailed four-sheet plan shows full construction details. The Plan also comes with the Magazine Article and a construction Manual. The model is of wood and blue foam construction, and a laser-cut wood-pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the model (or the Additional Wood Pack if available), as well as the blue foam and hardware needed.

The full size: The Vickers Wellington medium bomber entered service with the RAF in 1938 and featured the strong yet lightweight geodesic construction devised by Barnes Wallis. It was used as a night bomber in the early years of WWII before being replaced by the larger four-engined heavy bombers. It went on to serve throughout the war in a variety of other roles including transport, reconnaissance, training, minesweeping, torpedo bomber and anti-submarine warfare. Over 800 GR Mk.XIII’s were built, equipped with ASV Mk.II radar.
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.
