It's as if you knew I'd been working on the Airfix kit OOB(what's that backwards :-[?) for the last couple of weeks!

I have a fuzzy memory of a symmetrical Bv 141 WHIF ... but can't find an image. Does anyone else remember such a twin-engined build?

Looking forward to see what you do with it, Zac  :smiley:

I remember yours.  ;)

I was thinking a smaller float mounted on the bottom of the crew pod,
so it would be larger than a typical wingfloat.
