    By any chance did you get any pictures of the inside of her. I never got to see the inside but heard it looked great.

    Cheers. I always liked the look of the Do-24, being a relatively unfamiliar a/c in these parts, I reakon they would have raised a few eyebrows when flying in and out of New Guniea.

    Australia had a tendency to convert its surplus flying-boats into recreational items.
