not exactly a whif : this version of the Puma has inflatable floats :
from what I understood it is rather an emergency water landing device, not meant to take off again.

In 1/32 it is big, and I was tempted when I found it for cheap.

This is very nice, eric, very nice indeed!

I like the different colors and adding the flotation bags was inspired!

a landplane version of the MC72, I thought, deserved to be given a tricycle gear :

That's some great, imaginative thinking, eric! Looks a natural for tricycle gear!

Most excellent! I always enjoy your fantastic projects!

FYI I moved this since it's not one of your hybrid animal/vehicle models.

well, it is a hybrid between aircrafts, and not a seaplane anymore whereas the other topic is about seaplanes

Wow, that is very cool! As BdB said, a natural for a trike gear ... which would also help heaps with forward visibility on take-off and landing  :smiley:

Very nice, I'm glad you didn't overdue the detailing; considering the floats and struts, as well as the wings, contained radiators for the cooling system, replacing them on the fuselage side would be a chore.
