Republic, better known for their military planes, commenced manufacture of the unusual RC-3 Seabee amphibian in 1945 and ceased in 1947 after 1,060 units had been made. In 1945 The U.S. Army Air Force and U.S. Navy placed
orders for several thousand Seabees for war time air-sea rescue duties but these orders were cancelled when Japan surrendered in August 1945. Today (2009) over 250 Seabees are still registered and flying, mostly in private hands but a few still serve as air taxis and light freight bush planes. Complete package for FS2004 with full moving parts, 2D and VC panel, check and ref lists. A real
fun plane, flies and floats beautifully. Two liveries included.
