Yes, the floatplane started life as an Airfix Ar196, but has moved to more sublime areas of aeronautical development. The radial on the Weinkel was partly to look utilitarian and partly to disguise the real heritage. I also tried to make it look a bit weatherworn and uncared for, as you might expect from a bunch of no-gooders. I thought your average crim might prefer an anonymous aircraft, but in the end assumed that McBains over-riding ego would outdo his caution, and stuck his name on it accordingly. And no chance of real competition VV, I'm just a bit player.
