Rules:
(The island isn’t meant to be kept, the cockpit is in the hut if you want to remove it)
Must be a seaplane/float plane
(I’ll include flying boats in this too)
Must be able to take of and land in the water (amphibians are allowed)
Can be both fictional or a replica
Must be a successor
Can’t be a repost of another build
Can’t be a copy
No more than 2 entries
No mods that add pats to the game
Modded parts through overload or xml are however allowed
Can be both military or civil
Must be able to fly for at least 10 minutes
No part count limit (but please try and put some effort in it!)
Must be done before December 15th (this may be pushed to a later date, apologies in advance)


Judging:
I’ll be judging on the following
Can it fly?
Can it take of and land?
How many details are added
The overall quality of the build
How the build looks (is it sloppy looking construction?)
Any builds that don’t meet the rules will be disqualified
How are certain parts used for say details?
How creative is the build?
Is it a common type aircraft on the site?
Is the description good at explaining how the plane works?
Is there any cool functions?
How much effort was put in the build?
Dose it look and fly like it was thrown together in 5 min?
If it’s a replica how accurate is it?
Dose it handle like the real one?
Dose it preform like a Extra 300 when it’s supposed to be a Cessna 207?


Prizes!!
First place: 10 upvotes (possible spotlight)
Second place: 5 upvotes (possible spotlight)
Third place: 3 upvotes
All entires that meet the rules will get a upvote
(I’ll probably add more to these rules because of stuff that is suggested or I haven’t initially thought of)

    Yes, so do I but many people say they are slow planes. I have never been in one though. But my dad does own a 206@MrSilverWolf

    @ThePilotDude it would be a decent difference so I’ll allow it, again must be a successor unless there is a very good reason why it can’t be

    @MrSilverWolf
    If I add floats to my Mountaineer, would it be allowed or still considered a repost?

    I may enter my Moray into this challenge. But there may be an issue where saving it as a sub assembly and putting it in here could stuff up the drag... so don’t be surprised if I couldn’t. :/

    Also testing whether the plane would not flip over while landing on water. Seriously.
