The New Kingfisher is almost complete

I sold the prototype and wanted to build another. Here is the new plane with the revisions we have done to the kit.
Anyone that has already bought the kit please post pictures or a link to your thread.

Newly completed

My new Kingfisher is now completed with the wing struts. Here are a couple pictures of the final plane. Looking forward to some open waters on the lakes so it can be test flown

Did I hear you say there was open water somewhere? Actually she won't get flown before the WRAM show.

I just got word from Thayer that my Anderson has taken 3rd in scale electric at the WRAM show.

Well Deserved

The competition must have been fierce. Your Anderson is a beauty.

Thank you Len. Even though I got 3rd there were 4 planes in the class. I beat a guy that had stripped a Maxford and rebuilt it for more scale. I did see a picture of his plane and it was beautiful. I was up against some other guys that are close to scale masters so I am proud of this plane

Here it is, basking in glory. You can just see some of Rob Caso's Dauntless (second place) in the background and also the Maxford Globe Swift done in chrome Monokote.

wow great model. Would be neat to have a seaplane with working retracts.
Didn't see the retracts option in the manual...

Retracts can be done, they are referenced in step #88. I have some additional illustrations I need to finish up to give some more detailed info on the retract setup.
