Aircraft and sea craft design can each express highly appealing forms, and a graceful yacht adapted to flight is among the most interesting and charming of engineering creations. The early decades of aviation produced many flying boat designs, but their niche in the world of commerce has all but vanished, and they are rare now.
This campaign will assemble a range of models of the flying boats.
The Rules and Regs
A flying boat is distinguished from a conventional aircraft by having a hydrodynamic hull rather than a fuselage. A conventional aircraft with attached floats is not a flying boat.
1 build a model of a flying boat.
2 subject may be historical of fictional, livery may be military or civil.
3 an already started kit is acceptable, if not more that 33% completed, and no work should be added to the kit between the date of this posting (5-JAN-17) and the starting date of the campaign.
4 post starting photo and progress updates in the official campaign thread, though you are welcome to keep a parallel build-blog type thread of your own.
5 post photos of finished model in the official campaign galley on or before the end date.
The campaign ribbon will be awarded to each entrant who completes a model according to the rules.
