    It's amazing how many people do other kinds of modelmaking but rarely say anything. I just started a Facebook page for a laugh called My Other Slot Car's an Aeroplane and it has already proved really popular!
    One guy has a serious obsession with stick and tissue Keil Kraft kits! Nobody knew! Only one has admitted to modelboatitis though.

    not sure what I have man read here, was it a cub for sale? any opportunity on my rare visits to the forum to blab about anything that I have an interest in! so here is my Beaver float plane, with custom Harbour Freight decals and paint job!I was experimenting with servo operated rudder floats, every fibre in my body was saying dont fly on salt water, but how could you resist that backdropπŸ‘

    Floats are quite tricky to take off and land with, easier with the likes of my avatar, a boat style hull, but more prone to bouncing which looks rubbish!

    Now you tell me - thought floats were more prevalent from what my pal said. He used a Beaver mostly though, DH of course - not the dam builder with big teeth ..........

    Ironically, not with skis, but floats. He sent me drawings of more makes of float than I could shake a stick at! It seems De Havilland were major float makers. Who knew?

    Trouble is, we rarely get snow and if we do get a flurry, the wind blows it away and the track to the flying club would be closed.

    I know someone who lives there and makes kits of those kinds of aircraft, albeit little 1/72 nd scale ones. Beautifully vac-formed.

    Hi Martin - not on a Cub - floats are more common. Actually know someone who was a bush pilot there.

    Haha, skis in Alaska, methinks, or those huge Tundra wheels and tyres they use on the short take off and landing competitions.

    Fitting 'em is easy, work of minutes. 3 pre-fitted screw clamps and you're done.
    Cutting to size and assembling the 'undreds of pieces is the 'orrible bit ☹️
