I like it and have been looking for just a model like this. Reminds me of the lake Bucaneer.
Just where can I purchase one of these little jewels?

That model name and picture made me laugh.

The model is a scale rendition of the fairly well known "Coot A" experimental ampihib.

The Asian originators of the kit "converted" the name to "Coota".....too funny.

Hobby Lobby markets the Pitts model by Art-Tech....I bet they could get you a Coota.

Here is a real "Coot A":

The product photo of the Coota has the same background as all Hobby Lobby photos. Presume that they will be the distributor?
Look at all the plane photos Art-Tech shows in their web catalogue.
All the ones with the blue background are sold by HL.

Hobby Lobby was not the name that the manufacturer stated as the distributor of this particular plane. I'm sure that it doesn't mean that Hobby Lobby will not be able to be their distributor for this model though. We'll just have to wait and see.

Guys,
I was at the Hobby Lobby field this morning.
Showed a printout of the Air-tech website about the Coota.
Jason, their test pilot, wasn't aware of this model, even though they do market some of the air-tech product.
I mentioned the plane was going to be made availabe soon and I thought it was going to be HL because the air-tech product photo had the same blue background.
He said it most likely is going to be another vendor and they copied the blue background.
So count out HL. Have any ideas who the vendor would be?????

All will be revealed it time.....

I don't want to be the only one with one of these little jewels----just one of the FIRST.

Pre release orders will be accepted in a couple of weeks, with a projected shipping date of 60 days.

I will not let you guys down---More as we get closer to the pre-order date.
