Hi, Gene

Why would a person want a plan? When you can get exact lazer cut parts and a one piece turtle deck and fuselage sides that fold over with tabs and hidden slots. So nothing shows on the outside of the aircrafts skin.
The lazer Kit is much, much nicer then my original layout plans witch the turtle deck and fuselage sides are all separated.
You or I personally could not buy the Depron, X-acto Blades, and take all that time to transfer all the part outlines to the foam for the cost of this kit.

BSD has always has had very reasonable prices on all their high quality Lazer Cut Kits.

The TRITON Seaplane Kit is priced at $25.00 and should be available to ship by November 14th, 2011

I will put the original plans out, but not this year, that's only fair to Bob's investment.

Keep Them Flying ! Your friend, Ken

Because some of us enjoy the process - like you do! You really do have an exciting design.

Nice work. I'll be adding this to my hanger of micros, and so looking forward to the kit.

Ken,

What did you use for the Cable Tube and Cable? Will that be included in the kit? What else will be included in the kit (I'm stockpiling required parts)?

I will have to keep an eye out for these to become available. That is a really neat little airplane. Always need another water plane!

Beautiful plane! I think I'll be getting a kit or two for Christmas. I think I'll be putting some tinybritelights on mine too. I imagine the Triton will do well on snow as well with a little protection on the belly.

Those are both the same! I think I will use a brushless conversion, I hate gear box noise.

Will look forward to building this nice looking seaplane. It kinda looks like the micro drake from a few years back. I built one and it flys great and it to rows nicely. Will definitely call Bob up next month for a kit.
