Pan Am Conwing L-16 Sea Duck

Procured as a replacement for Pan Am's Sikorsky S-38, the Conwing L-16 served in the airmail, feeder, and route pioneering roles as its predecessor. While it would never achieve the fame of its bigger, clipper cousins, the L-16 was a reliable, popular aircraft in Pan Am service.

Could you do me a favor and color this red with yellow thunderbolt stickers like Lightning McQueen? I'd like it to be the same shade of red as McQueen.

So what was her Clipper name? Thembria Clipper? Cape Suzette Clipper? Louie's Island Clipper?

I always loved the design of the Sea Duck, it's one of those cool fictional airplanes that could have been real.

Panda-La, Walla Walla, and Bearmuda were always favorites of mine, too!

It's great that you decided to give the fictional plane it's own history.

Thanks! We put too much effort into this profile to just use it once!

I can imagine. Perhaps we'll see this in a USN anti-submarine scheme as well?

I think we'll get a couple of USN ones eventually.

Hope that you include the pirate's biplanes, as well.

I won't say never, but there are no plans to do those anytime soon. Unfortunately, they aren't as interesting in profile as the "Sea Duck" and they would take a lot more work to turn them into practical, flyable designs.

Infact never heard about this one, looks cool!

Thanks! It's a "what if" profile of the "Sea Duck" from Talespin in Pan Am markings.
