Thanks Don.

I have completed a second float build and I am just trying to decide if it is something I can live with or not.

Well after many frustrated attempts to make the floats on this thing presentable I am throwing in the towel. I still have the 4TP in and hope to have the 7TP finished on time. :(

I've heard nothing but bad news about those floats. Sorry to see you giving up the ghost on this one. Do you think you'll continue at some point or just trash it?
I'm only asking because I do want to attempt this one myself at some point, but not if it's impossible.

I think a redesign of the floats is required. The formers are fine the skins not so good. I started on the fuselage and cockpit and encountered many fit problems there as well (formers and skins). For me it is just too frustrating. So it is a dead issue going in the bin.

There are many other kits I would like to build that are less of a hassle. So many models, so little time. It is an interesting aircraft though. I wonder if anyone else has designed it or would like to?

Modelik has one and there is also an out of print one by Model Card (Model Kartonowy.) I have not built either one so cannot comment on their quality.

I used to have the old Model Card kit, but I think I gave it away years ago. Modelik has one available now.

I haven't seen the newer (what's it, four or five years old??) Modelik version, so I don't know if it's simply a re-issue or if it's been completely redone. Anyone have the answer?
