    Hi rockape,

    I've been watching this for a while, the link you've posted is better than the others I saw yesterday. I think this is going to the museum in Sola. They have a set of floats and spare engine for a 115 so it should patch up nicely!!

    Here's a link to AHF that shows some good interior photo's including artwork. It's amazing how well it's been preserved considering it's been underwater for 70 years. Rather knocks last months recovery of the He 219 Uhu that I posted into a cocked hat that's for sure!

    Fabulous footage ! The 115 was one of my favourite plastic model kits. It was a Matchbox produced kit in two cokours but I soon made it look realistic This aircraft had such an amazing cockpit canopy
