(backup story, to explain the colors :
as the conversion work on the prototype was ready, only the new parts were painted red anew,
leaving the original airframe in its original, slightly worn, red finish   :banghead: )

A He 162 Salamander flying boat

from a 1/48 Replica resin kit, and one float from a 1/48 MC72

done there http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,44720.0.html

There have been other builds of this concept before here and there on the web :
mine is a bit more sketchy (and the original resin kit was a bit rough)
but quite bright in color  ;)
