« Reply #1228 on: November 08, 2021, 12:39:57 AM »

a very old, very rare kit : I found it built, not too badly, but quite incomplete w.r.t. wheels etc
but this was fine for a seaplane







using Ju52 floats

Very nice!

a very old, very rare kit...

Is this the old 1/75th Heller kit?

...using Ju52 floats

But you'd never know it with those ultra-swoopy pylons!  :smiley:

thanks !

yes it must be the Heller kit (I didn't get a box, but there is only one kit of this)

and the pylons are most probably from some B-52 I think ;-)

There is a 1/72 SEM Model kit but that represents the developed Couzinet 71. That Model 71 had a slightly longer fuselage but I'm not sure what the other mods were ...
