Hi Oceanskimmer.
I have looked through Lennart Anderssons Putnam book on Soviet aircraft (a bible on the subject ) And there is a definite NO on the subject.

But the Tupolev Ant 4 is a YES.

Hope this helps.

Hi Roy, I think he means the post war AN-14.
Gunstons book "Aircraft of the Soviet Union" says the AN-14 could be fitted with skis or floats as well as the normal wheeled landing gear.
Unfortunately there are no pictures or drawings of it on floats or skis.
Maybe a book dedicated to Antonov aircraft might have it.

Hi

Thanks for your help.

Yes its the high wing twin engined transport, i think that's where i have read about the floats. I have a nice little kit of this one, might make a good conversion to floats, i have search for a photo on the net but not found any.

help would be greatly appreciated with this one.

regards

The Antonov AN 14 Pchelka (Littlle Bee), NATO Code name "Clod", is your target should you decide to accept this mission Tasse.
