Flying Boat

Here's something I've been playing with for a while I guess the last two float planes I did made me want something larger. Like most of my planes this is another custom design based on three planes I looked at. It's going to be a large plane 150 inch wingspan or larger.

hull design is good from what I can see. Needs some way to stabilize roll on the water.

Retractable pontoon floats would be a nice feature.

HA HA asj, That was was another feature I was going to bring up ALONG with adding pontoons/floats ....(retractable ones)...... Retractable wing pontoons was my first thought when I saw the picture, BUT the plane is in it`s early stages, SO I`m choosing to lay back on giving Tech. suggestions until at least midway (maybe sooner ) through the build, We`ll see Sometimes my keyboard fingers get itchy. He`s already answered the pontoon question, whether they`re retractable or not, well, we`ll just have to wait and see, BUT, I`m all for it. My initial thought was if the pontoons will fit into the wing or not, AND if Tech would be willing to add that detail. It CERTAINLY would add a cool factor Tech. that`s a hint ...
