My A/1 done up in coastal command colours with D-Day stripes and the addition of rockets (and a couple of small tweaks), pure fiction, but fun!

    Most kind of you @RamboJutter for sharing that with me, I think your builds look like they should be from a platinum user with the likeness, proportions and detail so bravo! Look forward to your next build!

    @Tang0five yeah they are not simple, i struggle as well because real aircraft have a twist to the hull where it changes angle along the length, this is impossible on simple planes so I just make it work and hope it looks similar. As for the boyancy I cheat with 'overload' mod I can increase individual parts floatation past the standard levels, so for instance my little floats have a figure of 10 instead of 1 which keeps the floats at the right level. After that is just balancing floatation of parts along the hull so its not too nose or tail high. To be fair though its this playing with parts that I enjoy, i do cheat however. For instance I have used a scaling mod on most of my wing parts so they have greater lift for the same surface area and I use small hidden canards a lot to help alleviate nose heavy or bad flying charactaristicts. Feel free to strip any of my planes for parts if it helps. Rotators I have shrunk so they fit nicer and I did nick a remodelled rotator from someones F100 (was an awesome alteration and if I can find the fella I will credit him for it as I use that one bit on most planes).

    Brilliant! I need to ask a master builder such as yourself, do you find making seaplanes awkward? I find they’re an absolute pain in the hoop to get ‘sitting’ right in the oggin and flying straight when you eventually get them to peel off the surface but your builds have no dramas!?
