    Hello,

    I show you some pictures of my first plane. The BV 138 was a seaplane. Normally Blohm & Voss in Hamburg made Ships in second World War. But they built a few planes, too. The crazy look of the third engine made it so interesting to me. This engine was attached after the prototype had his maiden flight. The configuration of the wings and the weak engines caused some troubles in aviation. More to this you can get on wikipedia. During construction I had a lot of problems to fix. The plane has a spread about 2,5 foot (80 cm). I hope this is right in your scale.

    Regards Andy

    The Germans came up with some rather interesting planes back then.
    You did a FANTASTIC JOB on this model.

    Goodduck, I had trouble figuring out what "<3", I wasn't sure what end you were referring too. I "love' those crazy looking seaplanes too. Blohm and Voss really came up with some odd looking designs, but interesting also.

    Andy, your model making skills are excellent and a pleasure to behold!! :)
