And at last starting with the glue.

If you feel that the plane is too low over the wood surface, it's nickname was "the flying uboat"! Meaning that the real one was too low too!

A little bit off topic, other forgotten plane

Hi Draco,
Have you considered the Fairchild 91 Baby Clipper?
There were only 4 models, but they looked very nice!

Right now I have five more planes and/or Uavs in the queue of "to design", but I could place the Baby there.

After a bit of testing, I printed the second version of the squeleton, with small changes specially in the area of the floats.
This one will be used for the skin placement, and as you can see it needs three grams of ballast (I use a bit of lead, but I recoment bolts or even pebbles)

yankeekilo found me the hardest picture to find of any plane: the lower hull. This picture will help me to make more realist the hull texture. With luck, the plane will have an almost photographic finish.

Again, you can see how low is the fuselage of the plane compared with the Supermarine Stranraer or any other hidro.

Thanks everybody!

The formers are finished. I'm including a small reinforced area over the center section of the wing, probably I'll include it in the outer sections, too.

As you can see, I already started to design the skin. But I want a very detailed plane, so I'm going to include all the small panels that can be seen in the picture and that will give more realism to the model.

Designing the fuselage/hull skin. You can see here the different layers needed to finish the part. By the way: the colors are not two different greens, but two grays, RLM 72 and RLM 73. The underside is RLM 65, again not blue but very light gray.

The alpha model that I'm designing is the Werk Nr. 159 (Aviolanda) / 0087 (RLM) Type T-3
And has the following history:
January 29th 1943 entered service with Seenotstaffel 7 as DJ+ZM.
February 22nd 1943 transferred from Athens to Sebastopol, this day only flying as far as Varna. Pilot Staffelkapitan Hauptmann Tretter and among the crew observer Feldwebel Ignatz Krumbach and mechanic Unteroffizier Lachenmeyer. Take-off at 11:05 from Athens, arriving at Varna at 15:54.
February 24th 1943 completed the transfer with a flight from Varna to Sebastopol with the same crew as above. Take-off at 09:10, landing at 11:35. On arrival Hauptmann Tretter takes over command of Seenotstaffel 1.
The Do-24's of Seenotstaffel 7 were ordered to make transportflights to the enclosed German soldiers on the Kuban front, they could only be reached by the sea.
May 15th 1943, lasting until May 21st several testflights were made from Athens with pilot Hauptmann Tretter. All in all nine take-offs and landings (these include those of the CM+IX, which he also tested those days).
September 10th 1943 made a rescue mission in Quadrant 0962 searching for a reported dinghy. Crew were Becker, Losch, Steinbock, Lind, Rausch and Bohnke. The dinghy was found and with a wavestrength of 0-1 one crewmember of a crashed Junkers Ju-87 is picked up and brought back. The whole operation took 2 hours and 22 minutes.
December 23rd 1943 involved in the evacuation of wounded of the island Kythera. After landing in the Kapsali bight during the roll-out the aircraft collides with a house that is build on the beach and got damaged. Pilot Oberfeldwebel Walter Steinig, radio-operator Feldwebel Guenter Kommnik and mechanic Unteroffizier Alfred Westerkowsky were wounded. Observer Oberfeldwebel Richard Marquandt, mechanic Gunther Kunde and gunner Obergefreiter Gerhard Gryzwotz are killed. It is not known if this was the end of this aircraft.
