    Re: 40'' Seaplane Tender, on the water at last
    Good piece of water you have there JB - what is it dam or river ? Was at Beale park in UK when a fellow was demonstrating his gas turbine powered
    Bluebird
    K7. Only just got on to the plane and had to shut down - short water - looks like he could have run it successfully there. Tender looking great on the water - glad you have her running before you added much more detail. From the pictures of the bow wave it looks pretty much like scale speed - seems to be the same as in pics of 206's final run. What sort of endurance on the batteries exactly ? Now onto the next model then?????? PS what about a ducted fan

    ?
    Definitely not a
    Bluebird
    - perhaps part of a 3 point hydro like this R1 at Elmbridge 2018 ........... OR more likely it may be a float off a floatplane - turned into a boat- most of those had a hydro type step to get the aircraft off the water more easily - the roundels seem to be a RAF ones so its probably one - who knows it may even be a model of someones conversion........
