Smile My new project of long duration- The Seaplanes and Airboat Collection

Hi friends !

I started another project in the area of interest , which is a collection of airboats , seaplanes and amphibians from all eras , they are civilians or military in constant 1/100 scale , the collection does not have a single theme within himself , drawing from the aircraft of pioner era , before World War I to modern models or the few contemporary civil aircraft and jet airboats.

To reach that goal , I'm worth everything, scratch , conversions , repainting , but buld directly reduced to 1/100 . I have in recent months acquired magazines and e -models on the theme .

Rapidly introduce models that already have this sub - collection with the topics here in

1. Convair F2Y - The Convair F2Y was developed as a supersonic air superiority fighter in the form of a airboat , is one of the fastest airboat have developed to date . This model is the Fiddlers Green and was built for the contest Fiddlers Green Modeling Madness .

Yokosuka E14Y - The E14Y was a small seaplane designed to be carried by submarines being rapidly assembled and disassembled and staying in a small hangar on the deck of some classes of Japanese submarines . The E14Y has the distinction of being the only aircraft of the Axis have managed to bomb the continental United States during World War II . This model is a scratchbuilding , and soon I make a new improved version.
