I watch about this infamous "Gimli Glider" many times in Nat Geo channel Air Crash Investigations episode. Many says it's the miracle landing before Sully, which also safe landed. The Air Canada case in my opinion  is pretty similar with Sully's case, both lost both engines and both glide down and landed safely, one on Gimli Airstrip and one on Hudson river, but Air Canada flight 143 started on much higher altitude (41,000 feet) which give the crew more time to think. The key part is the sideslip manuver by pilot Captain Pearson, to slow down the plane before landing. The papermodel is in 1:100 scale.



Roll and make a tube shape of part 1 and then insert 2 formers (F1) on each ends, leave some space for the inner glue-tabs (part G1).


Slit for make holes on the belly of part 1. Use a sharp hobby knife. You can cut it before or after it rolled.

Combine the nose section by attaching each parts with its inner glue-tabs. Insert a ball of paper or you can make it with ball of styrofoam inside the tip of the nose cone. This method is a new way for making the nose tip.

Combine the tail section by attaching each parts with its inner glue-tabs.

Shape part 10 into a belly fairing like the  above picture with the help of glue-tabs (G11). Make holes on belly fairing (part 10) to make way of the wing spars to slip through.

Slip through the wing spars  (F4 and F5) in the belly. Make sure  all of them are centered before apply glue to fix it. Attach horizontal (22 and 23) and vertical (20) stabilizer on the tail section. Make the angle of horizontal stabilizers a bit upward (dihedral). Make sure you shape all the stabilizers into neat curved hollow structure, but glue the end of it. It must be hollowed or it doesn't have strength.

Attach inner wing parts, place and glue them by following the guide lines on the belly fairing.


Attach outer wings, but first you have to place 2 formers (F2 and F3) inside each wings.

Attach engine mountings and flap hinges like the above picture

Combine the left engine parts, glue the glue-tab (G14) on the inside of part 31 and then attach with part 32 and part 33. Combine part 26 and 35 and then insert it inside part 33. Close the engine nacelle with part 34. Finish it with part 37 and 38. Make sure all seams are on the bottom and align them  with the engine nacelle's seam.

The right engine parts are almost identical with the left one, but with some parts mirrored. Make sure you show part 58 with the correct reflection texture on the side.

Slip through part 39 inside to the bottom of part 27. Attach all 4 wheels (9) on each sides of part 27. Attach accessories part 30 on its place.

Before inserting the previous landing gear set inside the wing, attach all accessories part first.

Before inserting the front landing gear set inside the wing, attach all accessories part first.
