Been working on something for something

So, Awhile back I got a call from my brother-in-law (who frequents any dumpster diving party) and says he has something for me and he will be over soon to give it to me. Turns out it was an old Goldberg Eagle 2 kit... Die "Crush" and all. Complete kit and undamaged. I saw it as a great opportunity to build a trainer for my kids and have some fun on.

I finished the build and spoke to a firend about a suggested covering that was light. He brought me a whole box of coverings to play with. So this is the result. The plane itself is finished. The propeller and battery are on the way. The flames were a fun little test experiment that my wife and I collaborated on.

So now I am making floats. Scratch built as is my custom when I need something done. This last picture shows the work so far. Simple thin ply top plate with $Tree foam formers nd covered with $Tree foam as well. I have since completed this one with exception of final treatment of glass and paint. She weighs in at a hair under 5 oz. Pretty nice if I do say so myself considering that commercial ones weigh around 10-12 oz finished.

Anyways just thought I would share.
