Hi everybody, Just finished this nice seaplane. It is a Mirage Hobby kit that has been around for quite a while. I was in between making the land or the sea version, but in the end floats won. A simple kit, few parts count, but it does take some extra effort to build, especially the alignment of fuselage, support struts and floats. I used some photo-etched bits and pieces, and the Yahu instrument panel for Lublin R-XIII (funny brass color). A bit of scratch-build for lights and the cockpit. The model is finished with Tamiya and Akan paints, and Microscale Flat varnish. It has an impressive wing-span for its scale, almost the size of a Stuka. Comments, questions and critical observations all welcomed! Dimitris K. 93
