Stranraer & YS-11, blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #1176 on: April 14, 2021, 08:39:35 PM »
here too the three colors together, with blue floatation







ok, the blades might be a tad long, but the elevated engines were tempting  ;D

Interessant, interessant . . .
I have a Stranraer to do as a One Wing Biplane, and I've being wondering as to how to mount the engines. I have a few ideas, now . . .   ;)


cheers,
Robin.

I too have a Stranraer monoplane on my digital-shelf-of-shame (one day, one day!). But Eric's turboprop 'Strannie' immediately made me think of the tilting nacelles on the Dornier Do 26  :smiley:

Or de Havilland Canada-supplied floats to adapt RCAF CF-101s for summertime ops in Canada's Far North?

Years ago, somebody did a photo-retouch of that exact concept. That image was nowhere near as competently done as Eric's depiction ... but it sure was funny  ;D

PT-20 & GeeBee & Laird, yellow : primary seaplanes
« Reply #1195 on: August 10, 2021, 07:36:11 PM »

I recently found this very old kit, and discovered its nice water diorama :







and got from the same bid two other very old kits (older than me ...)
which I decided to fit to this nice base :

a Gee Bee







a Laird Solution :







and I think I could fit quite a few others in the future ...
