Seaplanes and Flying Boats Contest Winner! “…Privateer, lowest priced amphibian of the world!” That’s what the advertisement stated in the early 30’s. At the moment of choosing the livery for the model the “Turret cigarettes” one resulted particularly appealing, although some degree of speculation was necessary, all adequately permitted by the Canadian Gremlin Color Police. A small number of planes were built; the one portrayed here has Canadian registration. It could carry two people at a moderate speed for a moderate distance for a moderate price. All very moderate, but the bathtub-cum-spider web design is really beautiful.
