Hi Maverick:

A concept of this racing (?) seaplane was discussed in a paper on high-speed seaplanes by W.G. Carter M.B.E., found in the Feb. 28, 1929 Supplement to Flight. See here:
http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1929/1929%20-%200407.html

Also, I have seen a scratch-built model of this plane in InternetModeller this year, if my memory serves me well, in nice silver-blue livery.

Hi mattrix,

thanks for this very interesting link, but Fig.2 and 3 show an other aircraft I think (evtl. a year earlier?).

Ah, #facepalm.gif!
Then the correct paper titled "FLYING BOAT DEVELOPMENT FOR SPEED RESEARCH", also by W.G. Carter M.B.E., was included in Sept. 26, 1930 Supplement. See here:
