I've always liked the 119, weirdness personified. But I'm not sure I'd have wanted to fly one with the propshaft about 6" from my shoulder!  :o

Who does the kit for that please?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

yes, the D.1 is from the 20s, the whiff uses floats from 14-18, probably a bit out of date relatively ...

Viking, yellow : primary seaplanes

I bought this kit just to go for combined shipping and make it less in average, not really knowing why (you pobably know what I mean)

but then suddenly I remembered about the Twin Otter in my stash, and well, the floats are a bit small maybe, but still ...
