They both look great! But I have to ask, the first one, is it a boat? a plane? a seaplane?

The first one is a Mako seaplane but it will fly off grass, water, snow and most other flat surfaces. Its a blast to fly and drive!

I must be a butt head, but shouldn't this thread have it's own title and not be under the NEAT FAIR thread or have I just screwed up terribly.

I love the thread, in fact I got foam tack to build both a Model Aero boat, a Dynamic Fomies F-117.

Hy Orrin, you are certainly not a "ButtHead", as Doc said, it will hopefully be moved to the Foamies thread when this is archived. Just in case I am taking your suggestion and running with it to the foamies thread, I will cross post this thread there later today. This idea started at Neat Fair, but I should have known to post in the foamies thread as I would reach many more people. So Thanks for the "Heads Up" good call on your part.

Hey Sandman,

I just finished building my Mako, give West Michigan Parkflyers a call and buy one from them. IMO by the time you buy the foam and have it shipped you are close to the cost of the kit. The kit comes packaged beautifully, and the cutting and hardware are high quality. I will post pixs of mine tonight, and just so you know I built the entire plane using only Foam-Tac and I used only about 1/4 of the 2oz. bottle. Foam-Tac works great and waterproofs all your seems as you build. The trick with Foam-Tac is to use a little at a time. I run a small bead along the seam, then push the pieces together then pull them apart and smear one side with my finger, then I wait about a minute and a half, then push parts together and Violla!!! the parts hold tight enough to go onto the next step.
Can you tell I love this glue? Looks for my Mako Pixs later tonight.
Regards,
Eric G.

your are right and my building skills are not up to Petes standards . out of whole box of foam i will be lucky to get one Mako out of the 16 sheets.lol
i had seen one Mako at the neat fair and the guy there gave me a business card with a link ,and info . its an amazing performing ship . well worth buying the kit ,rather than me attempting to make one. i had figured i would give it a shot at building one ,but this ship looks like it needs to be build by a person with building skills. my skills are more of crashing planes . so i will stick to that instead
thanks for the advice see you guys at the next funfly .

Foam Tac

Ok Guys, Here are some pictures of my build of West Michigan Parkflyers Mako.
First off this is an awesome kit, well packed and all foam, hardware and cutting is of very high quality. I used Foam-Tac exclusively for the build and had the plane framed up in only a few hours. I will be adding our new coating compound to the float bottoms tonight, and post the pixs of that tomorrow. The compound is light and sands really well, and is very paintable. Above all is it is very strong and waterproof.
The second and third pics are of the Foam-Tac hinges, no tape, just glue and this glue works very well for hinges. OH and BTW I also used Foam-Tac to hinge the the top battery hatch!!!!

Thanks for looking
