GDay Stephen,

You said:
Secondly, I said that I would like to see a Hansa
Brandenberg Seaplane. Well, there are several of them and I
couldn't remember the number of the type so I looked it up
last night. I would like to see the W.29 modeled. It was a
really cool monoplane. Looked way ahead of it time (1917)
except for the tail; the stabilizer is mostly below the
fuselage. I presume it was to give the rear gunner a good
field of fire? Interesting.

All I can add to that is

"Yeah, Yeah, gimme (pant, pant)"

The only references I have both mention the low fin and stab as being
intended to give a good field of fire. Looks like you're right. BTW, I tried
to scratch build one in 1/48. Wings are way too difficult for me since they
are thickest at the point where the struts join them (half way out) and
thinner at the fuselage. Ruddy hard to do, so I gave up. :-(
