Does anyone have any information, pictures etc... of the Blackburn B.44 float fighter. I have British Secret Projects, and there is limited information in the back. Does anyone have anything further?

Thank you,
DJM

Looks doable for a kitbasher, start with a Fairey Firefly, some P-47 outer wings, and a Kingfisher float.

Anyone has the drawing in a bigger resolution? Sadly the aiwarfareforum is long gone now.

The intake/radiator is principally the same as in the early marks of the Blackburn Firebrand or later marks
of Fairey Firefly.
(drawings fom http://www.the-blueprints.com )
And apart from the single compared to the twin engined layout not really different to the DH Mosquito, I think.

One of our members has recently made a nice model of the B.44 which can be found here.
