Hello everyone... does anyone know if either Republic or its predecessor Seversky ever designed an aircraft for the airlines. I know they had the Seabee flying boat/amphibian. However I was curious if they ever tried to design an airliner. Or did they leave that to Boeing, Douglas, and Convair/Consolidated ? For that matter did they ever angle into Piper, Beechcraft, or Cessna territory ? Dennis

I think this will not be so weathered, since it was a civilian craft and not flown into the sturm and drang of warfare. It'll be OOB, except for whatever scratch I manage to construct. I am going o to try to make the build last 2 whole weeks...that will be tough. Happy modelling all!
Here is the beginning of my GB contribution...the D.H. 60G Amphibian from Avis Models. It looks like a promising little kit with some good small detailed parts, excellent moulding, no flash, etc...the clear parts are foil. I will be building OOB except for some additions in the cockpit where I see them needed. I will also be using the box art as a guide and will be retaining the white/silver colors. To this end I have primed the plastic with white matte from the Humbrol Acrylic rattle cans. This way the white paint will cover well and the silver aluminum will look bright and shiny. I wil
