the floats were added by me, using some aircraft pod from my spares box, so they are whiff  ;)
Ah, I know they are a real world option on various Huey models.  You did a beautiful job of modelling them. (Brian would love the little-used tricycle gear option for Hueys, absolutely gorgeous spats).

One of my favorites of yours yet, eric!

I really like the contrast between the prop and the all yellow everything else.\

a lovely tiny I-16 in 1/144 from zvevda, with a central float from a 1/350 Loire 130 and side floats from a 1/350 SH-5



and, yes, catapults (from the Kingfisher 1/200 kit, thanks again Tophe  ;) )

Putting an I-16 on floats is sheer genius, eric!

The paint work is great too! It really give the sense of a well-used aircraft.

I like the shots on the catapult too! I think the red one is the most pleasing base.

P-47 & I-16 are surprising yet correct looking.  Nailed em both. :smiley:
