Short-Mayo Composite flyingboat.


Hello your Airboatflyingshipness,

Here's a link to a Master British Model maker, Victor Woodason and his phenomenal input to the model making world, of particular interest is the section with the Short-Mayo Composite, the rest is fabulous too.

Hi ABFS,

Don't know if you have this info, an interesting link to waterborne gliding from the past, I did visit the Windermere Steamboat Museum in former times, and the Falcon was there to marvel at.
The russian version of the Boeing Duck looks cool
Cheers, Al
