LF plans of US Navy one off float planes F4f, TBD, SB2U-3,et

Postby ssculptor » Tue Nov 30, 2010 4:53 pm

I want to scratch build and kit bash 1/32 scale U.S. Navy one off float plane versions of their fighters and bombers. So I am looking for plans of these (in any scale).
F4F Grumman Wildcatfish
TBD-1A Douglas Devastator
XSB2U-3 Vultee Vindicator
I can also use photos of same.
I have all three of these in 1/32 (injection molded, solid wood and vacuform) and want to convert them to their float versions like the Navy did in the late 1930's and early 1940's.
What if the Japanese had caught the American aircraft carriers at Pearl Harbor? Maybe we would have put some of these in production until we could get more carriers built.
Thanks,
Stephen

Stephen may not be but I am as a step towards a scratch-build project. I work in 48th so need to develop my float building abilities.

Helldiver floatplane! That's most impressive that needs to be built.
