    Nice clean lines but enough detail to look right. Quite the credit to you. Like the colour scheme too. Expect you will get a lot of enjoyment from her.

We're at the top of the world the other way round๐Ÿ˜Ž. BTW the indigenous Aussies invented the aerofoil!

    "we like to be different !๐Ÿ˜‚ cos we can be๐Ÿ˜"
    Careful JB. That may boomerang back on you!๐Ÿ˜
    Yep. The aborigines did invent the aerofoil.
    Was not a success for airliner design though.
    They kept landing back at the departure airport๐Ÿค”

    PS "the water goes down the plug'ole the other way down here as well"
    Better than coming up instead of going down๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

    I remembered this seaplane tender from Model Boats October 1917 in the readers models section page 58 it was by Bill Burtwell from Canada.
    It was available as Model Boats Plan MAR2077 (Sarik Hobbies)

    P.S. the plan featured in the 2012 Winter Special Edition

    Lars Halverson (Australia) made some stunning launches after the war. One of Australias' best ever boat builders.

    Doug, well spotted, nothing to do with hemispherical positioning though, purely operator error!!! comes from assembling the nav. lights with the cabin upside down on your lap!!!
    Remedial action taken ๐Ÿ˜‰
