I almost overlooked this crossing, even though I have crossed quite a few Buccaneers and Twin Otters as you might remember from this thread or another ; but finally it occurred to me, and here it is :

the Revell (ex-Matchbox) Buccaneer with floats from a Revell (ex-Matchbox) Twin Otter :

Your Buccaneer seaplane is truly a wonder!

I especially like the sharp demarcation of the intakes.

Well done!

Superb Bucc, simple yet powerful, you were the inspiration for my Westland White Shark so keep up the hot whiffing, please. Again, SUPERB.
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

this build was first devoid of hull and floats, but was subsequently improved, and consequently moved from

to here, where it now belongs :

1/28 Camel, wooden kit of da Vinci designed wings, hull from an old three masted "Hamphitrite", side floats are fuel barrels from two 1/48 P-61 :

I have long wanted to do something with a Tracker, and found one (Hobbycraft 1/72),
to which Twin Otter floats were a good fit :

I wish I had thought of putting floats on a Tracker.

Great work.  :)

Looks Great!  About the only question I have is clearance between the floats and the prop arc and how much they can move in relation to each other.

a quick floatplanization, using the single float of a Hasegawa Pete in 1/75
(yes, strange scale, but it seems to be a very old mould, quite unlike Hasegawa usual quality, apparently a re-issue from their very beginnings, maybe for some historical reason?)
fit to a Avia CS-199 (which is basically a twin-seat Bf-109)
