Does the mention of Felixstowe beaching gear mean there is a kit available for
the Felixstowe Flying Boats? I have been considering a diorama and one of these
on the ramp with a bunch of mechanics milling about has been in my mind for a
long time.

I am not normally a static modeler so I am not aware of all the resources
available for display models. If someone can lead me to the right sources I
would be very grateful.

The Esoteric kits (including the Curtis N9H) are "Vacform Kits with white
metal parts and decals." As I mentioned in my prior post, I haven't seen
any of their aircraft kits, but if their Felixstowe beaching gear is
anything to go by, they should be pretty decent.
