  1. So this will be my contribution to the 'Multi Engine' anniversary GB. I will attempt to convert the Wingnut Wings Felixstowe F.2a flying boat into one of the first real passenger/airways aeroplanes. The Aeromarine 75 were surplus US Navy Curtiss F-5-L flying boats from WWI, which were converted into carrying passengers. The original company 'Aeromarine West Indies Airways', was one of the first international airlines in the United States. Aeromarine began operating flying boats in 1920, transporting passengers, mail, and freight from the United States mainland to the Bahamas and Cuba. In 1922, Aeromarine began transporting passengers from New York to Cuba, on a two-day trip nicknamed the "Highball Express" This nickname was earned, because many of the passengers were trafficking in alcohol, which was illegal during Prohibition (1920-1933) Aeromarine 75 'Santa Maria' in Havana Harbor. 'Santa Maria' in New York. For the first time I'm not at all sure whether it will be possible to complete this challenge. The amount of conversion involved is humongous... The Wingnut Wing Felixtowe kit, + extra wing sprue's... Two Wingnut Wings Liberty engine sprue's to replace the Roll Royce Eagle engines... Gaspatch turnbuckles and HGW seatbelts (I'm not yet sure if they were used in US flying boats?) The plan of the fuselage I've been working on, to get my head around the interior layout of the extended hull... Well it's out there now, no way back from this... Happy modelling y'all: Kent
