Named after the main financier of the Hansa-Brandenburg Works, Camillo Castiglioni, and designed by Ernst Heinkel, the H-B CC came out in 1916. It had a wingspan of 30 feet, 6 1/8 inch, was 25 feet 1 1/8 inch long, and 11 feet 9 inches tall. It had a top speed of 108 mph.
About this creation
Designed as a seaplane fighter, The Hansa-Brandenburg filled out its role well.
The motor and it's struts are pretty much taking the entire weight of the top wing here.

'Working' elevators, rudder, and ailerons.
These Star-struts were tricky to do.

This was my first time building a flying boat, so I decided to go with an aircraft with a simple (yeah, right) hull. Tips on hulls would be appreciated, as they are not my area of expertise.
What an interesting choice of a flying boat! Thanks for including the reference pictures. The solution for the star-struts is clever, as is the technique for the engine mounting. I will explore more of your models.
