Parnall "Prawn" 1:50

Hello!
I`d like present my next design.
British experimental flying boat Parnall "Prawn" from 1930. More about this aircraft you can read here:
Parnall Prawn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Here you can see a few photos:
Parnall
Model is ready in 3D and I started to unroll parts.

Best regards.

A very interesting aircraft. I see that the engine could be tilted up 22 degrees to allow the propellor to clear the water on take off.

Wow!!! I have a lot of information about "obscure" aircraft and you always surprise me.
How do you do that? :D

Looks very nice, waiting for more

Wow, another obscure flying boat! I'm glad you're tackling this, and I know Gixergs is going to be over the moon....

Nice model in the works. The aircraft has really nice lines to it. There are so many reasons why this plane was a bad idea from the get go, but creating this model will be fun and possibly keep someone from ever making such an error of thought again. Gotta love the British, when it comes to strange ideas. I know, I own an MG.

Wow! I'm really surprised so much interest. Thank you!
Luis: I wath often a few my favourites websites with plans, drawings and descriptions of aircrafts, and sometimes I find something interesting.

The first parts and some pictures in instruction are ready.

Best regards.
