    I don't want to seem to be discouraging, but does the 'Tradewind' actually qualify for a WW2 aircraft ?

    After seeing some of the fits, or lack of, I would welcome a change to another model......
    We've all done it, or at least I have researched one to infinity before I discovered it did not fit the GB.

    Whilst it is a 50's aircraft but it's a floatplane/seaplane so semi qualification! Nice work so far. Old models to me are some of the best just because of their simplicity and age. Anyways looking forward to the rest of the build!
