Thank, gomidefilho!
I'm designing/assembling the float struts. There are details that the 1/72 model won't have, but the 1/33 one will do.
At first I planned to not include internal wires in the struts, but... just thinking about somebody bumbing the tip of the floats on a table... I included them.
And, testing the center of gravity of the real model, I decided to remove the two grams of weigth that I was requesting in the front of the floats, because it wont be necessary.
Another change: I wasn't sure if the plane had a window under the pilot seat, but at last I found evidence of the window and its placement, so it will be depicted in the final model.

After a blackout 33 hours long, here are the floats assembled and with the first layer of paint.
You can see too the bottom of the plane painted in RLM65.
AND I really need to do all the things that couldn't do while the food in the freezer was in risk of being lost (it didn't happen, thanks God).

Placing the supports of the floats, The are very few things to do before releasing the plane!
This one was made at 1/72 scale, a friend of mine will do another one at 1/33 scale with another camouflage!

This single piece of "chin" took me days to design. Why? Well, there are few clear pictures of the bow, there are five versions (at least) and some of the drawings are misnomering.
But meanwhile I painted the last color, RLM73.
So, now remains to do the bomb sight, the pitot, the propelers, guns and the radio mast. Easy! Finished!
... and then, of course, rescaling to 1/33, giving the final sheets for beta-testing to yankeekilo, and doing the instructions. :-)
Almost ready, almost ready.

And the He 115 is finished!
Now comes the instructions, and later the 1/33 version that will be ready surelly the next weekend.
Of course, if meanwhile somebody wants to buy a copy of the 8L+FH, you can write me and I'll send it to you.
The one in 1/33 version is going to differ in having an extra gun under the nose, with a very small radar too. It will belong to the 1 Kü.Fl.Gr 406.

Thanks, rifleman, thanks gomidefillo!

The instructions, and the parts numeration, are finished. Two more blackouts today helped me to search some documentation in my tablet. In fact, this last 9 days I've had 7 blackouts.

Anyway.

You can see that my model is painted in a 65/72/73 scheme while the model I'll release is painted in 2/72/66, meaning gray instead of medium green. That's because the plane expended part of it's life in standard colors, but it was repainted gray nearly it's sinking. You can see more information here https://heinkel115.com/wp-content/up...e115_paint.pdf
I already have two people requesting the plane, so I'm developing their specifical versions first.

A fellow hobbist requested me the spanish and norwegian versions of the He 115, and they are already finished and delivered at 1/72 scale.
I won't be releasing them to ecardmodels, because I'm planing to release this time only two combos of two planes each. And the release will be made only at 1/33 scale.
But, if you want the two versions already designed, you can write me and I'll deliver them to you.
Why I haven't made yet the 1 Kü.Fl.Gr 406 version? Because I need to design the extra gun under the chin. In the page of the book I'm showing down, you can see the normal gunsight (Upper picture) and the extra gun (Lower picture).

So, this week assignament, an MG 151 machine gun in a fixed position.
