Does anyone out there produce a He-115 Seaplane?

H&R. Available from The Last Square if in the US (and even if you're not).

No He-115 on the Last Square Website or in the H&R Spring 2012 catalog that I could find.

Catalog: PDF link

I had to scratchbuild my own.

How would you like to build me a couple???? They look great.

What a nice air armada! I'd love to see those finished up, with crosses and other decals.

Also some detail of the He 115's. Please show more photos!

Pretty please :)

WOW.
I assume these are 1/300?
Superb painting and panel detail using the pen for such a small scale!
NOT to mention that the models themselves are excellant too!
As I make a resin 1/144 He115 I can appreciate the complexity of the forward observers/gunners canopy area and you have captured it well.
I also love your Ju86 (I think they are)? in the last picture.

WOW INDEED!

All this is scratchbuilt? Did you build a prototype and then cast the rest of each type, of is EACH plane a labor of love?

Wow, my respect and admiration.

What do you make them out of? Any quick info about technique, or process? I've been thinking of making a Yak-3. One of the best fighters of the war (some would say THE best) and none of the 1/285 or 1/300 makers has it!

Beautiful! Why do you bother buying metal figures when your own models are so superior? Love the HE-115s. Well done VSB.

Thanks for the comments!

Pajaro, they are each handmade out of balsa or balsa and styrene.

ACWBill, I do in fact make most of my own stuff save actual humanish miniatures.
