Will upload again, though this stabilizing thing from youtube have made it less shaky, is has also made it even more unsharp and the moving choppers jumps rather than flies :ranting:

TSC-2 Explorer, an landbased version of the Thurston TSC-1 Teal amphibious flying boat. Only one ever built, after unsuccessful in in US, prototype and production rights was sold to an individual in South Africa, but also here it failed to enter production. The prototype was sold to the SAAF and used sporadically Test Flight and Development Centre before being transferred to the SAAF Museum.

GD, I was waiting for your fixed wing pics to make an appearance in the thread as you couldn't just leave it hanging with whirly machines only :haha:

That maroon painted Harvard really looks lovely :good:
