  1. Now that’s beautiful !. Well done Allan !

  2. That looks great! There is just about a flying boat that land planes just don’t have. How big is it in 1/44? I’d imagine about a 12″ span? The blue shag carpet is a nice touch!

  3. Stellar workmanship, sir…..a real stunner.

  4. Love your seaplanes, Allan!

  5. Beautiful ! Did you use the kit decals? if so they held up well.

  6. She’s a beaut! Even made those tiny engines pop.

  7. An excellent job- very skillfully built and finished!

  8. Really like this Allen, nice job.

  9. Hello Allan,
    Stunning in every aspect. What a sharp finish.

  10. The epitome of a flying boat. A classic build of a classic plane.

  11. Hi Allan, well for my money this is the best so far ,a lovely job done of a gorgeous aircraft, very well done.Did you re-scribe the panel lines or are they raised?,this kit is now on my “to do” list thanks to yours.

  12. Alan,
    I proudly add my compliments on a beautiful build. I started one of these but got bogged down with other things. When I finish it I only hope it looks half as good as yours.

  13. That is a real beauty. An inspiration as I start my 1973 Airfix kit.
