Matt, yeah i did guess a bit, looking at the 3 veiw and pictures, cut and sand till it looks close. it could be a float plane given enough power for takeoff, just be sure to strengthen that tail as its pretty skinny.

Nick, it sure is a floater, just about a brisk walk. the eps is from my collection of foam that i have been saving for years i think this stuff came in a shelf kit from Shopko.

some Hobbytowns carry sheets of EPS for train sets that should work. they also carry a small hotwire cutter that could work for cutting 4" wide sheets if set up right.

It's ok Svede and Derk, he'll be off back to YouTube soon enough. Intelligent talk bores children.

Glad about the 6mm swap. I did something similar recently on a 5g aircraft, which showed a great difference. Plane would barely manage level flight with a 4mm and was a rocket on a 6mm. The weight penalty was far outweighed by the performance increase. If i'd have read this thread first I might have saved the bother !
After looking at a Twin Otter and the famous short runway of Saba, i'm leaning toward a thinner longer wing trial on micro planes...probably one of these Virus's.
Any chance of video Derk ?
