OK... it doesn't look like there are any objections so far, and many need it. I will add an extension to August 31st.

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 31st. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS CHALLENGE COME JOIN

To those of us with that penchant, don't slack... just get it done. :)

I guess Ill join you guys. I was mowing around the pond the other day and thought it looked pretty inviting. I did not create this picture of the plane, but I did put the float on it. Im a little obsessed with this plane. It was a parasite plane from a zeppelin! I just think that is so cool and it looks good too. It was operated by the Navy but it never had a float, although it did operate a little off of a flat top ship, so it had rugged landing gear and a tail hook. But the wheels were not necessary most of the time when it was operating from the zeppelin, so they were taking them off inside the zeppelin mid flight and putting on a fuel tank. Anyway, I was thinking IF the program would not have ended tragically, maybe a float would have been developed for it that could go on and off as needed.
I made a plan for this already but it its not full "Master Series" style. More like half-aster style. So Im going to try to take it the rest of the way and if that goes ok I have another idea that hopefully is not a dis-aster style. Build thread link
