That's an interesting idea.
It would be very close to the table top if you waterline  it. I'm not sure just how big a plane it is.I suspect a little two big. I've already got a water line Walrus seaplane (smer),and an Ertl die cast Goose.Plus the card Tri motor,and I'll have the ski plane(once its finished.).

Though...
It'd make one heck of a colourful table next to the Walrus.If I could compress it down to the same wing span as the Walrus. Or the Single engine '39 might be a better option.

Having had a look at the videos. It's look quite unnerving to be a passenger on. As it doesn't So much land on water, As sink and then remember it can float.

I picked one of these kits up today on eBay, for £5.99.  Side-tracked I know but... There's a cunning plan,if its too flimsy to be a piece of scenery. Then I've a perfectly good set of nets for building one in something more resilient.

Schreiber models become amazingly sturdy and tough if built correct. I used to build a dozen planes and even more ships more than 30 years ago and even added the 1/200 Zeppelin for nostalgia 15 years later. I remember a 1/50 scale Junkers Ju 52/3m with detailed interior too.

I forget the manufacturer at the moment, but I eventually plan to do something similar when it comes time for me to make the inevitable tramp freighter. There's an EXCELLENT paper model with varied play areas (lots of levels and gangways and such for cover and movement) and a realistic design (no goofy proportions and whoever made it knows what a ship looks like). I figured I'd make it in plasticard and cardboard instead of paper.

What in the world...

It baffles me how paper model kits ever run out of stock.

They probably source their paper from Wernham Hogg or maybe Dunder Miflin.

If you have an hour or two to spare this thread would be a great starter for some very unique aircraft.

The only stipulations being something I can scale compress (if necessary) down to 12-13 inch wingspan.Also on skids/skis .
So as you can see its got all the hallmarks of a cunning plan.with no rudder.

Mark,  Not sure if you are still pondering a ski-plane.... Is this what you have in mind?  I took a picture of this beauty at the Smithsonian air/space museum with some intention of building a model of it - love the skis!

Traversing the Antarctic in a single engine aircraft? Mad or stupid or possibly both. There’s a diecast model of the standard version of that Northrop Gamma as well as a rather obscure kit in 1/48

I think 'Carlos M' is right. Confirmed the order then a couple off hours later refunded the money.Hay Ho. ::)
So I'll more than likely order direct(cheers Michi.)

It's an interesting site Tony thought I suspect its easier to navigate as a member.

JT,
I like the look of it (I wonder if its in the Wings of Texaco range,As it appears it was sponsored by them.)
My only reservation is I'm not sure how well it'd translate,as I opted for a shabby feel for Pulp,rather than a Shiny one.

Here's three possible planes.
Fokker Universal - a period transport plane and bush plane.As I've already a tri motor it'd be quite a simple build ,and would fit quite nicely.
Junkers F13 - again very similar construction to a tri motor( in a scratch building context).
Spad S A 4. Not a lot to say other than its a Heath Robinson of a plane,and it'd fit in with another project.

Mark.

I looked up the Junkers F13 on Wikipedia, as it seems a good size for a project. They have a set of drawings of the plane:
