Sig "Sealane" Amphibian
Just completed a Sig "Sealane" kit and decided along the way to make it an amphibian using the add-on landing gear and tail wheel assembly shown on the plans. That was a good choice to allow more than water flying, since a suitable lake is at least an hour away. The changes in the kit were to add basswood chines to the bottom of the hull and to mold a sheet balsa windscreen area, since simply gluing on a celluloid windscreen looked like an open (pun intended) invitation for water to enter. So far flights on the water have been hampered by excessive wind, but having more opportunities to fly on land have proven it to be a solid performer, much like an LT-40. A few photos are attached.

Very nice looking seaplane! The chines are a good idea, I've added them to all of my seaplanes since the 1980s. Looking forward to a lake report!
