The wish list! What s the subject you would most like to see, plan, kit or RTF.

Being a little interested in Waterplanes....
I thought we might throw down the gauntlet a little to the designers ....whatever floats your boat...........all be that flying-boat

for me Number one has to be a plan for a large electric Saro Princess

Number two either the Latecoere 631 or Short Sarafand ....I waver

Third but by no means least and possibly the most achievable the Piaggio 166 Gull /Treker Royal gull.

What say you all??

Information as usual to be found here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...=448080&page=3

Always liked the Blohm & Voss 238. Built "Ivan's Style", nice and light with Speed 480's, and retractable tip floats, it would be a interesting subject.

Several others I'd love to see kits/plans for are the PBY2 Coronado and the Russian Ant 22.

Generally, the more obscure, the better...

My Be-200 is back at the top of my completion list after some postponements.... Hopefully, for SMALL 2007 in early June.

But a kit would be pretty cool...

I like all the Beriev flying boats.

A good Sunderland kit would be great to have.

A Curtiss Seagull or Curtis HS2 would also be great. I got to see both of these aircraft on a visit to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada recently.

My wish

Hello All,

I would like to see a Dornier18 in a 48" wingspan. In fact I am working on one as we speak. The twin prop single nacelle configuration makes the most sense to me. I have the fuse done and am working on the program to machine it. It's amazing how long everything takes... But if it were to magically appear in kit form I would not deny myself.

I would like to second the motion of "The more obscure the better"

Cheers!

Thomas B Peter Angus built a nice small to medium sized Sunderland.......given all its complex curves.a good one to have pre cut parts for .

I'd love to see a large full scale gas turbine Beriev done your EDF version looks as though its well advanced TB.
My favourite Dornier is the D26 push pull but its run a close second by the experimental 112 pusher.
Ive never seen a flying model of the Ant22 .plenty of SM 55's but non of the russian twin hull giants...not even a plan good call.

For the Curtis I know thers a part developed free CAD plan available the Bv is a good Ivan style build as is the Short Shetland.
The BV and Dornier all feature in at Fly electric http://www.flyelectric.ukgateway.net/index.htm http://www.flyelectric.ukgateway.net/largesum.htm

GLM theres a nice one of those on the German Wasserflug site, please show and tell when your ready.....ditto TB and that little Be 200.

The ANT-22 has been on my "to do" list for a few years now. I like it! As my schedule is becoming more free, perhaps that should be my project pre-Chilliwack '08. I just need to learn how to stop people from calling it an Antonov

The Mk 1 or the proposed refined and larger Mk2 version Martin........ auto translate makes figuring it all out a bit tricky as to what the original Russian text is about I have only ever found two sources of info on the web for these giants???

I'd like to see any of Ivan Pettigrew's waterplane designs available as laser cut kits made of contest quality balsa. What are the odds of that happening?

~Possibly getting better as we speak but it all depends on the master..............Meantime nonscale Tapio Kusoma is working towards possibly getting his fathers work more widely available and that means many goodies like this T17 possibly if we are in luck?

I only have information and 3-views for the Mk 1 so that's what it would be. The size of the model is a matter of debate. I'd love to go big, say 80-100", but I don't think Christine would allow that so likely somewhere around 50-70" would be my goal.
