A very old warbird... With MOVIE!
Believe or not, this is a warbird!
It was used in the first years of WW1 by Austrian-Hungarian Royal and Imperial Navy, to protect Croatian harbours against Italian Caproni bombers raids.
It's the Hansa Brandenburg cc, scratch buildt with simple folded Depron seets for wings, and a classic balsa hull.
Powered by Hacker A30 and 2s1p 2000 mAh LiPoly pack can fly for 15 minutes and over, for best scale apparence I keep one third gas the most of time.

Really the plane is very simple... That's because I projected it for aircombat games, and you know, when seven planes tries to cut themselves a paper strip, accidents are very close!
The place is a 5 minutes drive far to my home; it's a small pond near to Como Lake (you know, where a lot of hollywood actors are buying their homes... like George Clooney, for instance). But Como lake in summer time sometimes is too windy for small models, so I prefer this little pond very close to Switzerland.
In this pic, you can better see the landscape; as you can see, now it's winter time, so no floatplane fly... water is too cold for an emergency recover

Sorry, I have not plans. I cutted it straight on the balsa sheets, but really it is so simple you do not need any plans.
106 cm upper wingspan
100 cm lower winspan
fuselage lenght 110 cm (with rudder)
weight is 1200 grams (heavy, but you need lots of lead for balance)
Engine Hacker a 30 M
For plans, I used this poor quality, lo-res three views I found in this Russian site:
maybe you can find something better browsing the Internet.

Superb model Lucam!!!..........
Great pictures, and super location.....
I saw a full size warbird that is very near the same as the Hansa Brandenburg in the Italian Air Force Museum, at de Vigna Di Valle, just north of Rome.
I took a couple of pictures of the Lohner L.127, which was a licence built machine from Jacob Lohner.
Fantastic museum, If your anywhere near Bracchiano(big lake, you can't miss it!!) do go.Lovely setting, and for float/seaplane model flying.......nearest thing to perfect!!..
