I have started up a new kitbash of a COX/Gravity micro warbird. This time I will attempt to put the Supermarine Spitfire on floats.
I made a Rufe out of a Zero kit before. Although it was a good flyer, it never was much good as a float plane. The material of the float was to soft and the wingfloats didn't have enough buoyency. In other words, with a little wind it tipped over and it fried the electronics.
This time I'll start with ready made floats and using two floats I will have enough floatation and lateral balance. I have not yet decided how to proceed but I made a first setup to get inspiration.
