  1. Very Cool George! I love those old sea planes. I was fortunate enough to snap some pictures of one of these beauties flying over my house when I lived in Lake Elsinore, CA. It sure in and impressive sight and yours is an impressive build, even in 1/144th thats a lot of resin! Good Job!

  2. I too saw it out at Lake Elsinore, and once up in Canada in the early 70s when we went to B.C. on vacation. What a monster!

    Really nice work on this one.

  3. 16" makes for a big model. With this livery, it really stands out. BTW if this a/c was a monster, then IMHO an unusually good-looking one.

    Nice to see people building this kind of models - off the beaten track. Thanks for sharing
