This is a remake of one I did in 1967. It is an old Airfix Wellington Mk.1 in 1/72 with floats from an Airfix Ju.52/3m and struts from Contrail. The floats and flame dampers were salvaged from the original build.  The Wimpy is OOB.  The model is brush painted with the old square bottle Testors paints, hand mixed to the camouflage colors. Decals came from the scrap box. Photo shot from my i-phone.
