If I could ever own an amphibian, this would be the one! An absolutely gorgeous design, advanced for its day in the mid-1960's, and still looking extremely cute today. What I would give for a ride in one of these! However, the best I can do for now is to bring you a selection of cracking images kindly donated by a number of correspondents from their own files. All we need now is an accurate 1/72nd scale kit to go with its cousin, the Republic Seabee. Any manufacturers out there looking for a change from WWII stuff?

SEAWINGS is indebted to Roger Cain, William T. Larkins, Ken Lichtenberg, B. Marembert and John Varndell for the use of these images
