Hey Bart,
Thanks a load. I finally got to see parts of the XPB2M Mars I never saw before. It is great it was documented. I also saw the English seaplanes movie posted in your build log. Great stuff.

Great pics of the Mars Bart, really shows the rear hull section well.

And what great procedure.

Cheers!

Demon,
We both do good things in our own different fields. I learn from your finishes also on your airliners.You are the King of the Airliners too. I do not know how you build so many. You are a 1 person production line with good finish results. A lot to learn there. So I guess we feed each other in different ideas. Anyway, I know how busy you are. Those Sikorsky S Clippers will be a sight to see when they get done. We have something in common making obscure models that many do not have. I hope I have a better water flying year this year. It was hard last year. I have large planes and not much help at the lake 35 miles away.. The water was down 12-15 feet and I just do not want to drag that aluminum boat all the way down and back from the waters edge. I am not getting any younger. I may get some help and finally get a good maiden up on the Mars. It is ironic that I am just 150feet from the waters edge at my house on a big bay. It is salt water. I refuse to fly these planes in salt water. It will destroy anything that gets damp or wet.
Thanks ,

I surely am going to give it a go. I hope I can get some help this year. It may be closer to late May or June. Where iI fly is a large pond. Last year the water table was down almost 10 feet. The time I get there late morning the early birds are packing up. The boat has to be dragged about 200 feet to the water line and pushed out another 50 feet to row. I just cannot drag it down and up alone because of health issues. I am going to try to get a friend to go with me to get her up in the air. When It happens it will be here and YouTube. Thanks for asking.

Hello Mat,
I am taking the plane down off the display this week and getting it ready for a Sept 7th waterfly event. I have someone lined up to help me also. I am hoping it all goes well.
Thanx,
**Neons** Bob
