This is my first RFI in over a year, in fact it's my first model in over a year.
I thought it would be an easy build to help me get my modelling mojo back. Couldn't  
have been more wrong, what with warped wings and fuselage sections to disintegrating 
decals. I think the kit goes back to the 1980's and the tooling to the 1970's
so hardly surprising.

I'm not sure of the accuracy of the colour call in the instructions, dark olive over light blue or the

positioning of the Soviet stars on the upper wing surfaces rather than the lower, but I'm certainly 

no expert so I trusted the box art.

Great job!  This was the old VZK(?) kit made in East Germany.  The older box art was quite beautiful, looked like a water color painting.  VZK were known for mostly eastern block military and civilian aircraft.  You took an extremely difficult kit and turned it into a beauty.

Great result.  Flying boats have their own unique beauty and yours is a cracker.

Thanks, Charles. Coming from you that is praise indeed.

Gorgeous Madge. Fling boats don't often stand out for their beauty but this Beriev certainly looks good. Really nice work.

Thanks, Jay. I agree flying boats do look a bit ponderous but I think they have a beauty of their own.

Hey, the Russian Martin Mariner. It's a nice Be-6 model, congratulations!

Hi, Convair. Must confess I didn't understand your post until I googled Martin Mariner. I certainly do now. Wow, that is so similar.
