Saro P.192 Queen
[ img ]
Planned 1000 passenger giant flying boat for P&O, so really she what better place for her than a nautical forum.
I originally made this in FD scale, but she would have been so enormous I had to see how she'd have looked in standard shipbucket scale.

Indeed this monster would be huge in FD scale!
The crazy last fling at the flying boat, like something from one of those crazy science magazines of the period but actually considered and pen put to paper.

I'd never heard of this. It's aggressively nuts. Nicely drawn, though!

Great looking aircraft. Since the passengers and luggage would weigh
200,000 lbs + , what kind of engines were supposed to lift this huge
aircraft?

The internet says 24 (!!!) Derwents, twelve buried in each wing. The inlet is visible along the wing leading edge.

Slight correction to erik_T's post, the engines would have been 24 Rolls-Royce Conways of 18,500lb thrust each (that's 444,000lbs in total!!).
The all-up weight would have been 1,500,000lbs.
This thing was peak crazy.

Another crazy stat, this thing also had 53 toilets!
