That is a cool looking plane if you buy one hope you do a build and review on it to let folks know how it flies and any mods you have to do along the way.
Here is the link to the plane.

While I can't be caught dead anymore with something that isn't handbuilt, it is refreshing to see a company coming out with the lesser known vintage stuff that I like so much. Much more interesting than any seaplane that Horizon or GP would release. This subject is also a relatively easy subject to model, with the flat surfaces. A guy who goes by LakeFlyer at another place, built a nice foam version a year or so ago.

Maybe they will push the envelope a bit further, and come out with some of the slightly more complex shaped vintage seaplanes, such as adding the AR196 and others to the list.
