Ivan Pettigrew's Albatross?


Anyone built this bird? Myself and a flying buddy are contemplating getting a pair of these birds up and flying...

Anyone built it? Trying to find some construction pics, but haven't been too lucky..

There are some "in the bones" pics on Ivan's website, but no series pics of the building sequence. I have the plans for this model, but haven't started building yet, though if our recent unending rain doesn't stop soon, I'll have lots of time to build it, as I can't get much of my job done in the rain. I'm sure you'll love flying this plane, as watching Ivan fly his is always great; he makes it look so convincing in the air, and on the water. None of Ivan's building techniques are difficult, a little patience and forethought will always get you through. There are no moldings involved in his designs, cowls, cockpits, and other details are always built up, or scavenged from common items like food and drink containers.

Hmmmm - by my count, that makes 16 sets of plans you have. What's the order of building?
