Anderson Kingfisher

A few months ago, an article in RC Modeler Magazine appeared a small article on a waterplane fly-in in Australia. In that article, there was a statement about fiberglass fuselages of varying sizes for the Anderson Kingfisher. I have been unable to find anything but plans. Can someone out there help me?

Hi Sticker, I also remember reading the article you refer to but I have also looked through a few years back issues of both RCM and Model Airplane News and can't find it. I will keep looking into other back issues during this week if no one provides the answers in the mean time.

Brian Winch, the Australian engine expert, have published photos of a 3 meter span Kingfisher from a fly-in in Australia.

mmmmmmm... Brian Winch. My father's almost friends with him, and I've met him a couple of times. He took a photo of my tiny North Star plane (Twinkle) and said it was going to be in an upcoming issue of an Aussie model mag.

...the man does make a point of going to all the big waterplane fly-ins around eastern Australia.

Hi again Stickerman, I found the article, actually I was very surprised how far back I had to go. The article is in the October 2001 edition of Radio Control Modeler magazine. The builder is Tim Nolan and the e-mail address provided at the end of the magazine is
The construction article is for a 1/3 scale Kingfisher with a span of 144 ins. and is called the Web Footed Kangaroo. I should advise that it is not a true construction article and there are no plans available from RCM. This aircraft is designed for a the power of an O.S. 300 Twin or a Super Tigre 3000. This is one huge airframe with a width of 12 ins.
If the above e-mail does not work try to locate the Rise Off Water Club in Australia. Hope this helps.
