|This fantastic series of LIFE
magazine image is the closest we are ever going to get
to a real Martin M-130 flying boat nowadays. If any flying boat
enthusiast could get this close to to an M-130
today with a digital camera, can you imagine the fun we could have!
recent public release of these amazing images all we flying boat
enthusiasts can do is express a great big 'Thank-You' to
those behind-the-scenes who made this gallery possible and to
the photographer for capturing the moment and then sit back and just
stare at what it was like to walk around one of these iconic
flying boats. Modelers, take note of all the
amazing details in the shots.
