      Hello at all

      I will try to build and finish my second large scale airplane. Large scale work is not easy for me who usually works on smaller models but I am very interested in this new challenge.

      We celebrate in France the naval aviation’s century, so I chose the Fabre hydroaeroplane.
      It's quite a strange and original aeroplane, I like it very much.

    The original aeroplane has been restored and is visible in the museum’s permanent collection of the Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace Le Bourget .

    Hey Philippe. Welcome to the site. I'm looking forward to seeing this aircraft built. It looks like you have a great start already. :)'

    great project, I like something like that very much.
    Write, nevertheless, please what to your technologies and used materials.
    The swimming body looks very promising already once.

    That's impressive. It looks extremely real.

    hello,

    and quite ready ...
    a pity would have pursued the construction report with pleasure more intensely and would have seen like you make your parts.
    It had begun so interesting, a pity you do not show up to us further in your creating.

    Beautiful work.

    Can you imagine flying this machine? Sitting there in the completely open seat, watching the water whiz past underneath? Taking flight as nobody before had? What a piece of history...
