Han W I'm looking at your fantastic creation and thinking this is possibly the man who could build a working Westland Pterodactyl vii - there's info and a three view in water planes but I did try offering up the idea in Flying wings.

Robin sorry mate I just clicked you started this you definately have to take a poke at the Westland with your flyingboat record.

Thank You Han for the linksand video. I read the patent and was surprised that
the prototype had a pivoting outboard wing. Mechanism also simultaneously
moved rear wheels. Your model looks and flys great. I'd like to see a full size
Lapidar. I"ll talk again soon, Stephen
