I have read somewhere, of a floatplane version of this type, has anyone seen any photos of this?

Thanks for your help.

It was never built, but there was a mockup.

Thanks to both of you for your help with information on this one, i have been looking for a drawing of this for quite a while. Need to match some 1/72 scale floats now to go with the 1/72 scale kit.
Thanks

Hi. For a few details of floats see FLOATS in this column. Not forgetting that they were EDO.

Unfortunately EDO no longer make floats.

In 2004, during a family vacation to California, we did the Universal Studios Tour. One of the shows was based on the movie " Water World ". One of the larger props used was this:

EDO floats are still being made, but by Kenmore Air Service in Seattle Washington.
Don't bother contacting them about historical info, they have boxes full of photos, records and other info but no one to go through the stuff, to sort and classify it.
It's just sitting there waiting ..............

Short of moving to the States and volunteering, since I'm pretty sure they won't pay anyone to do it, I haven't a clue.
There are a lot of people who wish they would get it sorted out though.
