This is exceptional work.
I had never seen the red stripe on the hull in any photo of a Dai Nippon Koku KK aircraft.
Beuatiful.

A lovely model (it is a model isn't it? ;-) of a lovely graceful aircraft and a tribute to his skills.

Thanks for bringing these few articles on 'Mavis' to our attention George and team...

Appears that the propellers actually run - a nice touch! Beautiful work on a gorgeous aircraft. The shape of the H6K has always made me think of some kind of graceful flying whale. A very animate-looking airframe.
