Toledo special on floats

Finished up the floats for my toledo special. I decided to cover them to match the plane since i like the scheme on it so much.

I wasn't able to get any video but did manage to get some pictures. This plane flew great with the floats.

Ok, Skippy.
You are on my good list.
That is a beautiful airplane and the photos are very artistic. I am glad the floats worked well.

Hi Skippy,
The plane looks GREAT !!!! Did you make the wire braces that go to the floats? If so, could I get some pic's of the bottom of the fuse where they bolt on? And what size music wire is it? Also how much prop clearance to the top of the floats do you have?

Thanks, Eng30

The braces came with the floats they are the hangar 9. I will get some pictures in the A.M. but if you feel along the bottom of the fuse the rear mount is already there you just have to cut through the covering. I made the front mount it is made so that it just bolts on using the landing gear bolts.

Hey *bump*...

I'm considering a Toledo Special and floats would be on my wish list.. Let's hear about your block dimensions and any updates on your flying experience with this baby.
