    Does anyone have any experience with, or suggestions regarding a WWI or early 1920's flying boat paper model that had pretty decent detail?

    I also have an interest in a float plane, so your experience with these kits, as to detail, build, and such would be much appreciated.

    Much thanks,

    Any particular scale? I ask because I'm working on designing a 1/144th Hansa Brandenburg W29 Floatplane from WW1.

    The following are on my ever long to do design list:

    1914 Curtiss "America", This aircraft really showed how much of a pioneer in aviation Curtiss was.

    Thanks much!

    I've been looking for a samll multi person with long range, like the early Sikorsky, but that Savoia-Marchetti S.55 is really interesting and I would never have though about it without your help!

    Much appreciation,

    Absolute!!

    Yes, I have to agree that those are two awesome craft. Is anyone working on them?

    I'd like to do the America, the other boat is rather ungainly from any other view, but there is so little information on these early Curtiss craft. I'm still researching data for the "America".

    Anyone ever tried building the China clipper or any of her sister flying boats? I'm sure that would be a thrilling experience.

    (And getting one to fly - boy, you'll sure get the girls excited with that kind of card-model!)
