I believe someone on whatifmodelers scale-o-rama'd a 1/72 He 119 into a 1/48 IJN floatplane fighter. Looked mighty cool!

Oh the possibilities

I recall reading that the Mosquito was evolved from an albatross bomber concept so the idea come to mind that a mosquito with an albatross fuselage would make an interesting high speed airliner/transport.

I was only talking with Neil Gaunt a couple of months ago about the time and cost of developing a new model for market. Seems a bit coincidental that Valom is planning a release of an aircraft that just wasn't on anyone's radar before (especially when there was only seven real ones built), makes you wonder how much of Neil's kit was copied ----

Can't speak to that but there is a precedence to this (in this case it is a co-operative venture) where AZ Model has just released a styrene Saunders-Roe SR.53 based on Colin Strachan's Freightdog OOP resin kit.

Even though the aircraft is very good looking, out of the seven built, five of them crashed and the two left were scrapped before they could crash. On top of that their service life was very short, couple of years at best (civilian and military together)

It's happened an awful lot in the past. As for the SR.53, which was on sale at Telford, at least it is an agreed co-operation and Colin will be issuing his own boxing, with different transfers, shortly.

Thanks. Did you have the opportunity to see the sprues and/or a finished kit? Colin already has his kits up for sale.

Sorry, I didn't see the AZ SR.53 sprues, it's not really my period of interest and I've already built one resin one. However they were going like hot cakes if that's any help.

I'm not surprised. A nice complement to Chris's SR.177.  I finally found a sprue shot over a Brtimodeller (not surprised).  Only 37 parts. My kind of kit.
