Macchi M5 Wing Floats?
« on: July 17, 2015, 08:31:11 AM »
The HPH Macchi Mr comes with only the early wing floats even though the kit decals are for the later style.  Would this be in the mix for you?

Thanks for the inquiry but I seriously doubt it; this is out of my wheelhouse in terms of expertise and Aviattic has announced an M.5 kit which I am guessing will capitalize on the shortcomings of the HpH kit...

I have been building this kit now for a few weeks and I can assure you there are many shortcomings. As far as I know the first 50 Macchi M.5 aircraft had the floats fixed to the wings, the remainder had the suspended floats.
