Scratch built depron micro Macchi 72 Schneider racer
This will be a semi-scale Macchi 72 Schneider Cup racer scratch built from depron and E-Flite micro floats, and the guts from an E-Flite micro Beast biplane.
I have no plans and will be basing the model on photos and what seems right at this size.
I'll be using my own personal judgement and experience to decide on a good balance of size, wingspan and wing-loading for what I hope will be the best compromise for a good flyer.
The photo shows the main components that will magically transform into a new model.

Steady progress, a tiny bit by tiny bit.
Windshield frame cut and glued in; made a slightly larger than scale scale fin and rudder; receiver in place; tail linkages prepared.
About 2 hours work.

Can you put up a small temporary pond at the field?
We're seriously considering a Schneider Cup type event here in Toronto.
The event would probably be closer in style to our "Warbirds" or "Jets" events, where each of simply take a turn to fly and talk about our models as related to the event.
It was Robert who egged me on to do this, and he is considering making one from a GWS Formosa kit.
We'll keep you updated, and feel free to follow the discussion on our club's website. Robert is to start a new thread on the subject soon.
