I know it! its great to see that lady there to give it a sense of scale, even then I remember it bigger. SWMBO was even with the top of the landing gear IIRC. Really cool aircraft though  :thumbsup: Started a love affair with seaplanes for me  :wub:

I agree, it was hard to photograph.  Even the B-36 was easier to take a pic of.  Course, that was outside and you could get far enough away to get a decent shot.

Here are the two I took last August.

Excellent pics there, and they give me an idea of how to put landing gear on my Berievs and my Martin Marlin.
