Very reminiscient of the Ju252/352.   They made a trimotor Dakota didn't they with a Dart turboprop in the nose?

That was the Tri Turbo three.
With P&W PT6's not darts.

I used a cloned copy of the nose section from Classic plane conversion  set on this build

I always hope for the best.

I like the Canberra seaplane - I like your choice of big floats - makes me feel better about my choice of big floats on my Me262

and I like the tri-motor - very Ju 352

nice work on all of them

Just a little suggestion on the Canberra seaplane, the load cg on a Canberra coincides with the front edge of the main wheel bay, or about three feet in front of the main wheel axles.  I've noticed that the step in floats is usually just a little behind the cg point.  I would move the floats further forward from where you have them Martin.  See the below pics for what I mean.  But I like the Flying boat version --- hmm!!

taming being the correct word for it lol

The Fuselage parts where so badly warped, you could have used them as massive cork screws. It took six weeks of the hot water treatment to get them as near as damn it flat. super glue and some very heavy duty clamps did the rest.

The Ashton is fast approaching completion. It doesnt really qualify for here, but a quick look wont hurt  :mellow:

Gulp!

That was a MAGNA resin? That's a serious Lazarus job you've done there OGL.  :thumbsup:

I believe the Ashton's fuselage still exists, someone at Air-Britain had taken a photo of it not long ago (IIRC)
