I finally finished the Flying Boat.  Tiny things kept getting knocked off and unglued during the build, but I refused to throw it against the wall.  EZ-Line was used for the rigging.

The Felixstowe saw service late in WWI along the English coast hunting U-boats and zeppelins.  It was a large aircraft with a wingspan of about 95 ft.



































Thanks to everyone for their comments along the way.

I know you had some problems with this one Mike but I think you did a cracking job on this one. All that rigging looks amazing!!

Superb job Mike! All the more amazing because of its size. I'm glad you didn't give up on it.

I really really like this, bi-planes are my fav and this is simply awesome. The rigging and detail make this a big winner!
