Vic Smeed plans of a rather ugly twin pontoon hydroplane air driven.
Runs a 35 ic but will have a brushless 300w turning a 8x6 electric pusher.
Water rudder pivot fwd of prop thrust line.
Photo shows most of the detail with styrofoam flotation built in

Good thinking with the built in flotation.Nice to see an old plan being used.Vic Smeed had some good plans.Good to see it being upgraded to modern power system.

Pontoon top surfaces skinned and sealed. Engine cowling epoxied and faired to spinner backplate. Donitello nose rough shaped out of polyester foam and glued inti position. Evil eyes an attempt at frivolity. Not sure how the windscreen will panout yet. The nose looks like the DC3 and DC4s i used to work on in the late 60s at Essendon Airport Melbourne
