Laddie Mikulasko's Shearwater

Hi All: It's one of those planes that you can't watch fly enough, Laddie's Shearwater. I was at the Midwest Regional Float Fy earlier this month and got a chance to see it fly and talk with Laddie. Enjoy.

I ordered the plans from Flying Models a few days ago. I contacted Dan at lasers@centurytel.net and he's agreed to look them over and quote a price to do a short kit. Everyone intrested should PM me so we can get an idea of how many he would be cutting.

Thanks for your comments Laddie. I just love seeing that plane in the air. Thinking about making a smaller one out of Depron.

I'll link it in the Seaplane section.

Paul

Plane has a "just right" look with pusher prop and V tail. Congrats Laddie, on another beautiful design.

After re-kitting my electric Great Planes Seawind last summer (which followed 3 years of tweaking to try to make the plane controllable on the water), I ordered the plans for Laddie’s beautiful Shearwater from Flying Models magazine. I also found some old posts that were discussing the non-availability of a short kit. There was an e-mail address of a potential supplier who was willing to quote the kit, but no one ever sent him the plans so he could do it. So…………I did. I just got my short kit from Dan Walton and he did a beautiful job with it. All parts on the plans, including parts for a balsa built up wing and templates for foam cores are included. I’ve attached a picture FYI.



If you are interested in one, you can contact Dan at lasers@centurytel.net
