Very super Mike. . .I'm in the "If it floats" club too. I have a big "Boeing 314" model handing
from the light over my desk here. . .and pictures of a "Little Engines" 1 1/2 scale 0-6-0 Switcher
on the wall next to my desk. And, lots of tugboat drawings on the front room walls.

There is just something about large scale that fits the bill for the perfect toy. . .

When the motors of this fine amphibian quit - they will need a tugboat and fast.

Nice one, Mike. Those Cats are great looking planes. Would love to see this one fly. I used to have a Curtiss Jenny with an 8' wingspan a long time ago. Michael is right, large scale is great. Allows for lots of detail.

Some years ago I could have bought a nearly finished Hawker Typhoon. With a ten foot wingspan but though...where would I keep it?
