The Felixstowe is available from Lone Star Models as a vacuform with metal and
resin parts for the engines and tip floats.

List is @ $65, I got one from Sopwith recently for about $20 less. As this is
the first plastic model I have bought in nearly 20 years, I have no idea how
good a kit it is. At first glance I didn't see any glaring errors.

As a relative beginner, I like plastic models that are large enough
to be noticed:

Zeppelin Staaken R.XIV (R.43) bomber 1/72 35. 5 engines!
Felixstowe F.2A flying boat 1/48 28.
Gotha G.V bomber 1/48 28 ex-Aurora
Albatros D.III 1/28 25.
