Ive steadily developed a growing awareness that the old-timers were very keen on Flying-boat designs so I started a thread over there to show some of these interesting designs ..for inspiration ....adaptation and promoting the cause...I just hope you like triathlons/canoeing if your a purist?

here's the link http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=538243
and its sister thread in this forum on K.Kusomas work http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=521810

or a giant converted to RC Privateer /Mcgovern's monster - vintage flying boat.
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10..._1/key_/tm.htm
