Looks good! Would probably even look better with some glassed GWS floats on it now!?!?

How much weight did you end up adding to it?

Is it me or are the wheel pants on the rear wheels on backwards? Or maybe the landing gear is on backwards?

Looks good.

Matt,

I was thinking of doing this for a club Show & Tell project. Do you have any tip, hints or tricks to share?

Thanks,

Wayne

Yes I'd say the wheel pants are on backwards or gear is backwards.
