Question

Scale Float Kits or Plans Available Anywhere?


Hi all,

I've been trying to find some scale float kits or plans, but other than the Balsa USA Edo's, I can't seem to find much. I'm looking for something in the .40 size range. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Josh

Thanks, those look pretty good; you could probably pass those off for a Bauman or Wipline float, but I'd still like to see a kit or plans for an actual model of the real thing.

Thanks again,
Josh

Fred Reese Float Plans


Fred Reese designed and kitted a biplane called the "Golden Oldie". He published plans for the floats. I have flown this plane off water the past 10 summers. The floats work great. I believe they have 5 lite-ply bulkheads, a solid balsa tip and balsa sides, bottom and top. I have reduced and enlarged them to fit other airframes and they all have worked well. The original plans have worked for all my .40 sized planes. I will go up into the attic and dig out the source for the plans if you are interested.

Yes! I would love to see those plans; I've been looking for some plans for floats, but so far haven't found any for anything bigger than foamies.

Thanks,
