  1. Not being able to let the German floatplanes go, I'm preparing for the release of Lukgraph's Friedrichshafen FF.33 L within the next couple of weeks. Friedrichshafen FF.33's at Zeebrügge. One of the characteristic features of the German Navy at Zeebrügge are the distinctive Rail Cars for transporting the planes and I've been thinking of scratch building one of those for some time now. This means I've started this project backwards trying to figure out how those 'Trolleys' would have been put together.
  2. Having tried to revive the Ship's Camel I don't seem to be able to let the German floatplanes go... As Lukgraph's Friedrichshafen FF.33 L is just around the corner (next couple of weeks) I've decided to 'shelve' the Ship's Camel once again I just can't wait, so I'm putting up another 'In the Navy' build topic with the Friedrichshafen of the German navy at Zeebrügge.

  3. Hi, when I saw this thread header 'Ten Weirdest Aircraft Designs.... I was sure someone would have put up the Linke-Hofmann R.I To my astonishment I hasn't been mentioned before...
  4. Thanks Chris U2! 1. Well I know the story of the belly landing, some of it is mentioned in the LSP article on the build: LSP article + photos on my Facebook page on Bureau number 7277/20 Webpage with the build... Lastly the very comprehensive build thread with some of my research... PBY-5A Catalina (Cutaway) 2. You are very welcome to use whatever you need... Facebook photo album PBY-5A Catalina Cheers: Kent
  5. Thank you for 'adding' to the story of the heroic actions on the Greenland Icecap. Would you have any photos from your fathers time in Greenland? Regards: Kent
  6. Ooooh, great to see your back on the Sunderland! Kent
  7. Thanks, I made a silicone mold for casting the struts for the floats. I reinforced them with brass or steel wire. There are some work involved but it gets the job done and they are stronger than the kit ones... Cheers: Kent
  8. Decal options for the German version...
  9. I would love to, lets see how everything pans out! Kent
  10. A little something to get the right atmosphere... Ein Großkampftag bei unseren Fliegern zur See...
  11. It's here, just put in my order! Friedrichshafen FF 33 L Kent
  12. Engines... that's a part where I find myself struggling a lot! I am really envious of those clean assembly/paintwork one can only marvel upon... On the other hand, I see some progression by each engine I do, so maybe some day... Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp from the HPH PBY-5A (scratched carburetor) Jumo 004 engines (Trumpeter) Liberty L-12V engines. Benz Bz III WNW. Mercedes D.IIIa (Roden) Cheers: Kent
  13. Thank you David, Kev, Brian, Jeff, Gazza & Michael! Appreciate your kind words! Kent Love the dog too, there seams to have been a lot of them around at the German Naval Bases... Cheers: Kent
