Hehehehe, nice one.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Canadair (waterline), blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #834 on: May 23, 2019, 05:28:44 am »

the other half of the hull used for the Hercules :
doing a waterline flying boat is a bit of a cheap trick (especially as it appears too deep in water, as if overloaded),
but it's fun

I like that, I might use the idea when (if!) I get around to my CL-415.

As a bonus, it makes the 415 kit more accurate as Heller didn't change the bucket doors on the underside.  It's right for a CL-215T (turboprop conversions of the piston powered version), but most of the decals are for 415's.  I really like this kit and it's rivety-ness. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

thanks !

the photograph is nice, but still, I am cheating, as I have two side floats in water  :wacko:

as usual, my stuff could be done more cleanly by more gifted modellers
