Thank you
I had 2 Beavers before a big KMP ARF and a kit from unionville that wasn't too bad but still not all good.
Theres always something bugging me in most Beaver models but this one was so perfect that I just had to go at it
Hope it handles as nice as it looks

I have to tip my hat to you Paul. I'm a little envious of you guys that can make an already great model look more realistic. I always liked the look of the Beaver, this one was just too nice to pass up. Even came with the floats, and a paint scheme I liked.

Hey Skyline I just went back in the posts to check yours out. Like Paul says I like the different color scheme. I just can't bring myself to mod a brand new plane to make it a one off. Very nice mod. I will eventually paint my floats silver, it just looks more the part of a bush plane.

Oh stop it. I'm blushing. But thanks! I'm hoping to buy another one here soon and just keep it stock.

It does look good and remember one other thing, the plane you put together the mods you do the enjoyment you get from doing it is for you in the first place.
Thats the fun of the hooby

I'll probably fly mine with wheels for awhile. I have never flown off water before so I'm a little hesitant to try a maiden off water. Have to agree with Pauls statement, part of this hobby is the self gratification of doing it.

Does it really matter if you get any at all. Why do you have model's in the first place? To impress yourself, or your buddies?

Will do as soon as this wind calms down. Is anyone else experiencing 25mph constant winds for 3 days straight? This is ridiculous!
