I use to do repaints for Flight Sim and her is one that I did on a 206

Go to http://www.airliners.net/ and use the search tool on the right side of the page. Hundreds of Beaver photos. Not sure if you'll find exactly what you're looking for, but it's always fun too look at airplane photos!

Anyone ever think of doing the lower dorsal fin on their beaver on floats? I'm planning on doing it with a piece of white Depron.

Just received my Trexler 3" Balloon wheels for my Tundra look
Now I need to make 2 axles for them and get a small bicycle pump to leave in my flight box.

By all means Paul, don't use your mouth to blow them up. Not even once. The moisture in your breath will cause the feeder tube to eventually stick closed and it is nearly impossible to open once it does. I have two of their little hand bulbs to inflate mine and they still eventually get stuck, then slowly deflate, never to be reinfated. I have a box full of Trexlers in the garage that are useless but I can't find it in my heaert to throw them out because they are so darn expensive. Guess I am waithing for a miracle cure. Love the way they look, hate the way they work. Tom

Just a video I made of my Beaver flying over Maumee Bay state park ( Oregon, Ohio) today. Beautiful day to fly today. The Camera is a Gopro camera.
