Question
How do these skis look

I never tried skis before. I bought the mains a few years ago and built the nose ski.

Nose is 5.5" X 2.5"
Mains are 9" X 3"

About five pound airplane, with 54" wing.

I made the gear legs longer so it sits with the same ground clearance as with wheels.

Does this look like a good size match for the airplane?

Having a look around at some skis and I think I see an important missing item.

The main skis did not come with and runners. I put one on the nose ski when I built it but I think it will not steer worth a crap without some runners on the mains.

Honestly it doesn't make a lot of difference on a model
Snow is soft and if it is really fluffy they won't take off
If you are on ice just point in wind and go
Watch out makin footprints in deep snow ! Screws up runway in a hurry
Just make sure they can't tip down !
