Van Berkel WA, scratch, 1/48

Dear Modellers,

 

This time I will show you a floatplane which name is rather unknown with you, I think,.

 

Though it has some familiar looks, because it was derived from the Hansa- Brandenburg W.12.

 

Here you will find the whole story:

I also found a nice video, which gives a good impression :

The aircraft was modified serveral times, my model depicts the first variant.

 

 

I hope you like the pictures.

 

With kind greetings,

 

John Haa

Oh, now that is cool John! 😎 And the upside-down rudder is really unusual; man, you have this scratch-building down to a fine art sir!  :worthy:

That's a very nice build. I especially like the anchor hung on the fuselage side. No idea why, it just looks somehow right to me.

Folks thanks for your nice comments !

 

About the anchor,  by studying the photographs, I discovered that even in flight this item hung outside.  I think it was difficult  to stow this rather bulky piece of iron inside !  😄.

 

Anyhow I thought it a nice item to include it on my model. 

 

With regards,

JohnHaa
