Sorry but you have the wrong picture in the top/index frame you are showing the biplane. Your picture used to be correct until your major overhaul.
I am working with a friend in France on a RC scale model of this final prototype version of two built the last of the Supermarine flying-boat line.
The earlier versions can be distinguished by a vertical rear edge to the central wing motor pylon and a different rear fin arrangement- the first version having only the two outer fins.
Designed as a ship born ASR aircraft it had a complex folding wing that was of variable incidence 2.5-12.5 degrees and flaps. Though troubled in its development it performed well in many ways, but it was too small and too specialised to find a role in the post war era.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
