How light?

There's a Matchbox Norseman on aussie e-bay ending in 4 hours.
Its the Glen Miller boxing but the floats are still included AFAIK.

There are also 4 Revell Twin Otters.  As with the Norseman they have floats and wheels but only show the wheeled option on the lid.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries

Brian,

I have a full set of Revelbox Twin Otter floats and struts if you want.
Let me know, and are you still at Providence Drive.

Mmm, I think I have a set of my own.  Let me check and get back to you.  OK?

Ah, yes, I'd forgotten that website.  Yes, loads of interesting stuff there.  They don't give dimensions though.   :banghead:

OK, I have been deep into my stash and found a Twin Otter and the other kit I was also looking for (plus a good dozen others).  So, my search for floats is at an end.  I thank'ee one and all for your help.   :thumbsup:
