    Finally have some progress to show on the Be-200!

    As you can tell, it still needs pontoons and engines. Its the largest of my models so far, because I had really nice blueprints to work from, at a very high resolution. I wasn't paying great attention during construction, so the fuselage is a little skewed in the middle. I've learned a lot about making flying boat models now, so I should be able to make the P6M-1 Seamaster pretty easily.

    P6m

    Oh joy! The P6M has been my number one aircraft to locate in a paper model. The pilot's manual is available on CD, if you need it, let me know and possibly I can get one out to you. BTW, this is a good time to say thanks so much for the aircraft already given out, I can't build them all, but my next few will be mostly yours.

    Best Regards,

    Artie Bob

    If the CD includes detailed 4-view drawings, yes, it would be incredibly helpful to me.

    Appologies for the picture quality, I was a little rushed, the battery was about to die.

    Release is getting closer and closer! I just have to color it, and then probably build the colored model.

    Its a multi-purpose flying boat. It can operate as a small passenger plane, a waterbomber, emergency evacuation airlifter (for a sinking ship, for example) or search and rescue, obviously aided by its amphibious qualities. It also has a starboard cargo door and can be configured to carry various sized pallets.

    The design is based off of Beriev's A-40 (Be-42) Albatros military design, which is slightly larger but aside from the nose shape and pontoon positioning, essentially the same aircraft. The Be-200 also includes an anti-submarine warfare variant.

    Beriev, a Russian company with a long history of flying boats is currently exhibiting the aircraft in various European and Asian countries, looking for buyers. Greece and Indonesia are currently operating these aircraft, and Portugal is expected to purchase 4 after a very satisfactory evaluation of two of the aircraft, despite the crash of one.

    Btw, scale is about 1/84. If enough of you want a standard scale, I'll do it, just let me know here which scale.

    I began building the colored version last night, but ran into a problem: the fuselage was twisted. I'm sure its at least partly due to my poor construction, but I'm also worried the kit itself may need some work to keep it correctly oriented. I've considered including an internal structure for this one, and probably will for at least one spot on the model, but I was wondering if there might be any other way to keep everything correctly shaped. Ideas?

    Finished! I'll finalize the parts and create a construction guide, and then it should be available.

    I think Paragon is interested the moment in other things; the Indian SU-7 also is not on his page

    A repait of the Beriev 200 is coming your way: Dressed up as a Hellenic Air Force Firefighter, and a little later on as a Hellenic Navy ASW patrol craft, Hellenic Air Force CSAR aircraft and Hellenic Coast Guard Patrol craft.

    Stay tuned ;-)

    PS. Paragon, do you want these to be sent to you first or is it OK if I just upload them here?

    Thanks.
