Wing tips added, correction of the front of the cowl (too large) and beginning of the engraving of the central part of the upper wing.

Grey Alclad primer is used to see where Milliput is required.

The floats. The largest come from Arado 196 B by Revell. It has been shortened reduced in height but widened and the bottom vacuformed.

Thanks to Revell France after sale service.

For the small floats, plugs in balsa.

The big. I used Contrail profiles reinforced with a stainless steel tube

Since nothing is stuck, it may seem wonky........

The engine cowl support must take into account that the propeller axis is shifted up and left.

Hi,

 

I am really impressed by your work on this model. I've also browsed all your thread on Master 194 forum. Your model is inspiring! I wish I could build a masterpiece like this some day :)

 

Best regards,

Peter
