Hi folks

Look at this big seaplane, in the photograph of Professor Edmund Rumpler with one of these big projects, the Riesenflugboote of 1925.

The second illustration is another german project, the Schiefer Flying Boat of 1926.

Third is the LFG V3A of 1921

The last ones you can find it in http://www.msacomputer.com/FlyingBoats-old/

if somebody has more information, please tell us!

Saludos

Fabián
