Apologies in advance if these should be their own individual categories and will adapt if so.

Here are a selection of my builds involving Flying Boats and Float Planes since restarting model-making a few years back after a break of around 35 years.

1/72 Airfix Junkers Ju52/3m finished as a WHIF, used by the Regia Aeronautica on Rhodes in late 1940

OOB Build. (I had posted this previously in a Junkers thread but seemed appropriate to include it here as well as it has floats! :) )

1/72 Airfix Short Sunderland III with Wrapround Camouflage.

OOB Build. Roundels & Lettering from Airfix Mosquito J30 kit

This is my first Airbrushed model and really like the finish that can be achieved over (my) brush

Lovely little kit to build :)

Excellent all around! Floatplanes are difficult to get right, but you nailed it!

Funny how a convertible Walrus looks just right! It would have been fun to fly like that!

Thanks. That has given me an idea as well... I could just put a windscreen on the front of the Walrus.. Plenty of aircraft of the era had open cockpits still, so would not be that out of order :)
