Now I am wondering what will become of the other clog?   ...

Waiting for the other clog to drop? Brilliant - and wonderfully twisted - stuff Eric  :smiley:

Interesting combination of helicopter parts and it looks quite convincing.  :smiley:

Very nice!  The only quibble I have is that the floats should have the forward mount farther forward to pick up the structure for the Black hawk's front landing gear.

The only quibble I have is this should be built in 1/1 scale!

1/1 is a bit too voluminous for me   ;D

and the front strut is at the level of the vertical support of the front wheel actually  ;)

By golly this combo also works fine  :smiley:
With R4360s and those hefty props this Sunderland would takeoff-climb like none other  :smiley:

Looks most purposeful!!  I'll bet those big props would throw up a lot of spray on takeoff.

Love the push-pull Sikorsky but all of your recent builds look highly plausible. Great stuff!  :smiley: :smiley:

That works really well and is quite attractive. I think it would take someone a few seconds to tell what's wrong with it. It looks more natural than the "normal" Do 18.

Cheers,

That's beautiful and looks so right and natural.  I think that's one of the most attractive blends you've done.
