This time i wanted to do an amphian. I thought a Goose might be a good subject so i started to make the 3d model for it , when this was done i surprised Gary with it and his response was very nice. He imediatly got excited so the next project subject was decided.
I got inspired by the psm Albatross building method and i was looking to do a simulair construction method. . . . . it should be fun to build it without plans.

In Oktober 2014 the model had its succelsfull maiden and i finally could show it here on Rcg , i had been silent about it till that day

Here is a link to the thread :

After my empire flyingboat i started a new design. This time the Dornier Do24K was the subject. I did an extensive research and made a very true to scale 3d model. Rcg member Parkcityskier has build the 1st prototype. Sadly the model came out a bit to heavy. Currently i am working on a re-design wich both Jim and i shall build.

Here is a link to the original design thread :
