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 will wait for this to dry over night and them begin inside the cockpit with some detail and some additional colors.  And away we go!

I think so too and it is a striking and spray looking number.  I'll be building it 'wheels down' since I agree with what someone has already said about beaching trolleys, etc...

The box art and the instruction sheet call for aluminum so I am sticking with that.  The undersides are black.  In fact, except for the sides of the fuselage (white with black trim) the whole plane is aluminum dope.
