Hi oddshot

I keep looking a the NC-4 and seeing lots of carbon fiber rods!
One day I hope. Read the story of the Crossing 45 years or so, wouldn't hurt to
read again if time ever allows reading.

For the next Depron Boat kind of thinking the Curtiss America.
Pretty Airplane!

Sucks when the girl hobby shops are well stocked with balsa and real hobby shops have zero balsa.
Picked up a few 1/8th sticks for receiver/servo mounts.
Next stop was the Hobby Shop where I found 2 gota have toys.
the Gee Bee R-2and the D.H. Mosquito!
The adoption fee was below unbelievable

Think I'm hooked?

So the current Curtiss project, not real sure what model as drawings of the F model or model 1 as the pictures have called it are wrong.

Did finally identify it as an MF model after getting started on the build!
Did change the tail to match the shape of the MF

I find no drawings of the MF but think I'm close!.
And almost finished! wing struts and bracing after some sleep!
