Land based Supermarine S.6B
« on: January 08, 2022, 07:37:54 AM »
This has probably been done before, but here we go. The parts bin has been raided for landing gear, and I'm scratch building radiators and an oil cooler. There were a lot of cooling lines on the outside of the real one, and even on the floats, so I figured it would need at least two. One under each wing, and the oil cooler will be centre-line. The putty in the oil cooler is simply to block the see-through effect.

It will be over-all silver, so the black base has been done.

A great idea and one I'm 100% behind.

That said, you better not start asking around for decals again!  ;)

Schneider Trophy goes Land-Based (prior to 1981)! Neat idea! :smiley:

Hmmm... I would need RAF decals appropriate for the mid 1930s. Or, make it a civilian one as an entrant into a new fighter competition.
