Hydroplane Gamera


Hey my friends here I'm back again.. not that you missed me (cause I'm not a very active member )any way some of you guys may know me ( one or two of you : ) and after having a lot of fun with Happymcc's working on our hydroplanes that he name GAMERA , Keth suggested to star a Thread so here I am, at the moment I just have some pictures of the aircraft but I'm hoping to have the plans done by this weekend I also have a flight vid some where witch I'll try to find to post here too, any way if some one will like to give it a try I will have the plans soon

I really love this plane this is my third time building a hydroplane and this one is the best I just love how stable it is on sharp turns in water and how easy it gets going on it

Hi My Friends
I have been so busy you must forgive me , I go north in the summer and it is close to time for me to go to Michigan .
Daniel , thank you for the kind words and I look forward to the build thread . I know that I like the plane so much this will not be my last one but only my first .
I have looked up pics of Gamera on the web and have an idea in my head but have
had no time and will need an artist to do the paint job I want .
Here are a few pic's of Gamera
It was very nice to work with you , hope to see you again .
Keith

It looks like the photos at the top were taken at SEFF. I was there, I hate I missed seeing the Gamera in action.
