Dear ericr, will you participate to the Floaty GB http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?board=69.0 with your next one(s) or do you prefer continuing here? As you want, because somehow you are like "Professional expert" of this subject, while we try to reach half your level... ;)


thanks for the invitation, I will try to post things on both sides  ;)

there were eggplanes, now there are eggships ; and the best of both worlds comes with egg-seaplane carriers,
like this Mogami from Fujimi :







there were PE optional catapults so i couldn't resist just adding them up with the plastic ones ;-)
and I moved the crane a bit to make them reachable, kind of.
And it therefore is a whif   ;D

some flowers to celebrate the coming of spring : on the seaplanes side :

this one, being filled with dew, carries floatplane Corsairs (1/700) :



other ones, with landplanes, are visible there :

a nice hybrid in itself, historically built from floats of a Ju52 : this is the russian 1/72 kit

Wonderful! :-*
(I imagine it would be an ekranoplane or flying-thing, but it seems there is no curvature of the flat part, so no lift, so this is a boat, yes?)

it was designed as a torpedo boat by the germans, so no flying, but still they did it from floatplane foalts  ;)

Loving the boat, er, boot, all good but that is the cream of the crop. Your imagination must be on full overdrive. Keep it up.  ;)
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.

thanks ! my imagination here was essentially the color the design is from the real world, and the kit from Micro-Mir ;-)
