Would be cool to have the Kingfisher as AI in PF. Any modelers out there that want to do it?? It was a very common pontoon plane used for scout and observation work. I used to have a model of one when I was a kid, kinda cool aircraft. It was also used for rescue work and they used one to rescue Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker when the B-17 he was in had to ditch. It would fill the same role as the U-2 and the FW189 do in FB.

IIRC a model for the Kingfisher was completed some time ago - by Xanty?

In the unlikely event that my recollection is correct we can look forward to its inclusion in a later patch.

Cool, looks like that one will do the job!!! Thanks for informing me of this good news. Let's hope it actually makes it in a later patch someday. Look at all the planes that have been started for IL2/FB but never made it.
