Here is a build from last year. A Hasegawa 1/72 Emily. A decent kit, although rather dated in terms of molding work. Lots of clear sections to contend with. I did minimal rigging on the floats and antennas.

I weathered it to match an Emily from the end of the war, when they were pretty beat up and weather beaten.

Beautiful. Lots of details to look at there, including the tension wires on the wing floats and the various antennae on the nose. I'm tempted to buy Hasegawa's new-tool kit of this (although I'd have preferred a new Mavis personally).

This kits wasn't bad. From the 80's I think. The details are a bit clunky and there is minimal interior assemblies, but it is a massive plane.
