Thanks folks.
Typical limited run kit.  Took a bit of paying attention to get together.  Has a smattering of PE (instrument panel, seat belts, water rudders) and a vac form canopy (PitA but worth it in terms of clarity).
Paint is Vallejo acrylics.  Sky underside with Dark Sea Grey and IDF Blue (or US Intermediate Blue - depends which list you look at) upper.
Decals from an xtradecal RAAF & RNZAF national insignia set.

Yeah! I like that. I'll have to build the one I have (which I got so I could rob the floats from it)
If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

Kitnut - The wings are plenty thick enough to carve out some wheel wells.  Or one would look good with spats.

I'm sorry I missed this, it's rather nifty! I quite like the paint scheme.
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

Glad you like it Zac.  Bit of a lazy scheme TBH.  No deep thought, research or custom colours.  just copy the one on the instructions with green swapped for blue and some kiwis.
