Breguet 693 ( la Levasseur PL 201), blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #677 on: October 01, 2018, 04:34:42 am »

recently Tophe reminded me of the Dornier racer project :



which reminded me also of the Levasseur PL 201 :



and I had a Breguet 693 in my stash, as well as floats from an An-2 Colt  (and an additional engine from a Ju-52) :

WOW!!! :wub: :bow:
I was wondering where are the 2 fins coming from but I understand the Br 693 had 2 fins at the tips of the tailplane all right :thumbsup:

A few years ago, I made the drawing of a Lightning seaplane (below, center) rather similar to your "improved" Br-693:

Do-X (& B-17F), blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #687 on: November 25, 2018, 04:26:31 am »

So, Ihad this incomplete vacform kit pof a 1/72 Do-X : I got it very cheap because the wings are missing.

So I searched for appropriate alternative wings, and the 1/48 B-17F (Revell) has the very same wingspan,

so here we go 'but still, vacform os not easy, quite a bit beyond my skills)

Great mix! With huge engines! So powerful looking... :thumbsup:
Are you sure this is a vacform? It looks so solid, so perfect...  :thumbsup:

Nice one - it almost looks familiar, but then the Boeing Clipper had basically B-17 wings, didn't it?
