Yes on pliers-bent.

I just pulled the front strut out of the plane, and traced it on paper, then duplicated it, (twice, so I could keep the original wheeled gear), with .032" music wire, using the pliers to bend it. I cut a slit in the bottom of the fuselage, put in the aft strut, and then glued in a piece of 1/32" plywood to hold it in.
The Champ flies fine with the floats mounted, but without the subfin you see on mine, but those are often added to Champs on floats, and it does no harm.
