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.

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.
