Thanks everyone, I appreciate the kind words! I will try to post a video when I can.
It is indeed the Catalina flying boat.

OK! MrWolfe and I (and possibly a couple of hundred others) will eagerly await the video.

But wait there is more, ... also just in case you thought I didnt notice:

Very fine woodworking ! ... and I also noticed something else too,
1. There appears to be a photo missing! (Hint hint The marble bearings would have been a good one)
2. Congratulations on the DT3
3. I guess the workshop will be next?
