Hi Bob
Looked at your site: http://www.bobscardmodels.net76.net
Very interesting! The "Mars" water bombers are based here in BC and very useful combating forest fires which happen every year. There is several threads in the "Micro&indoor forum" about scale models build using the folded paper planes method. The poster meatbomber from the Czech republic is very good at it:
They use mostly designs from that site:http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/ which you probably know about!

Hi Coriolan,
At the time, I had to include the Mars, as its size in comparison to the "tiny" Tracker was so huge!! It was one of my first models, and I should really be improving it, especially as its long wings need better support. Some day, perhaps!
I attach the state of construction of my Canadair, with the French decals I designed from photos. On the pici, the wings are not yet joined. I joined them yesterday, and will prob ably have to strengthen the join with a flat wooden strip 30-40cm long, to keep me happy. Not really happy working with foam, and I probably will save up one day for a fibreglass model with water scoop and retractable LG.
