Hi I'm new here but have been flying flight sims forever it seems. I just dusted off my joystick and started flying FSX again after not touching it for months.I was wondering if there any good seaplane models available for FSX either free or for purchase.I've seen a Short S.45 Solent 4 for FS2004 but don't know if it'll work or how it looks in FSX.Thanks,Doug

Nice link, thanks for that.My attraction to "seaps" springs from my father flying them for the US Navy. He flew the last P5M tail number ever produced. So I grew up around these, hence me having 11 downloaded "seaps" in my hangar.

>this may be my first "flier" post and not to address someones>complaints or technical questions, yeah!And even now you can't stop being helpfull! ;)It must be great being able to play FS during worktime without getting fired...! :( Lucky you! Or do you even play it for fun at home? ;) (BTW People often forget that the people who make the software are also often users themselves: so things that go wrong for 'us' also go wrong for 'them'... must be quite frustrating sometimes, I think...)
