This sub-forum is for the dedicated solid wood modelers: this is the traditional 'older' method that existed prior to the plastic kit genre. Solid wood carving methods date back to World War One and in the hands of a skilled craftsman a superb model can result. It is the ultimate scratchbuild.

Hi all, my name is Lou aka lastvautour and I am a solid wood building much like solidmodeller but not quite as good. As far as seaplanes are concerned I have not ventured very far into the realm. So far my collection has a 1/144 Seabee, a 1/350 Boeing Clipper, a 1/24 DHC-2 Beaver on floats and a 1/144 Kingfisher. I also have a plastic collection however the only seaplane is the 1/48 scale Monogram Catalina. I look forward to surfing the site.

My next nautical venture will be a Piaggio Royal Gull if I can find some drawings.

Why don't you post some images of your collection?

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2270/2261480816_5c0672f78e_o.jpg The Boeing 314 was a "Solid Model Memories" group build on flying boats. The project took approx 10 hours of carving, sanding and painting. The decals were made on my HP printer. The 1/350 scale was chosen in order to fit a diorama using the Clipper to deliver mail to USS Enterprise. The diorama did not materialize but I did get a few pictures with both models siting next to each other.
