I found this 1/60 ready-built figurine (NewRay) and added floats (from a 1/72 Twin Otter);
I nearly painted it blue, but its original colors only required a red complement

Nice call on the colors, eric. The floats look like they were made for it.

Indeed!  In this scale-o-rama, are the Twotter pontoons proportionately bigger than the usual Air Tractor float gear? If so, perfect for a Fire Boss upgrade  :smiley:

They don't appear to be bigger.
