Well, it looks like it could be a Grumman Goose, but that can't be right because Zeke was already talking about it, thus, not a surprise... and "BIG" takes you right to biggest Goose of all, but the tail is wrong.

I'm sticking with Grumman: Mallard?

Scratch that, I think albatross was on the money.

OK, good, I'm not crazy... I revised to go back to Albatross. And, from what I can see, is that 38" wing span? Sounds awesome. I can't wait!!! I will avoid digging into anything big in anticipation.

NFSIV wins the prize which amounts to more anticipation as we get closer to finishing the design work on the Albatross. Fear not though because we are still working hard on the Anderson too. although your guess on the wingspan is a little off. The marking you see is the half span. See the attached picture below

WOW, that is a BEAST. You were not kidding when you said BIG. I guess this means I need to up size the 48"x24" piece of steel plate I was going to order for a new building board.

No need for that just have a big table to build on. As per the usual PSM kit style it all interlocks so no plans to build over and it has been designed to align itself to keep things straight from the start.

Thanks CapMike.
Was just wondering if you had ironed out the problems. I'll go ahead and put something on the building table. I was stalling to see if it might be almost ready before dropping anything else on the building table.
