Beaver Fever in Southern Ontario

Wonder if we'll be able to keep this thread clean, LOL

When we were down in Toledo this past spring, Andy and I each picked up the Wendell Hostetler plans for the 126" DHC-2 Beaver and the Floats
http://www.hostetlersplans.com/DeHavilland.html

We also ordered a pair of full-kits of the plane and floats from National Balsa

Andy's will have a Moki150cc 5-cyl radial. Mine will have the OS FR-420 77cc 7cyl radial. Andy's will have wheels and removeable floats. Mine will be amphibious (floats with retractable landing gear).

Colour Scheme TBD.

A good video to get us in the right frame of mind

Re: Beaver Fever in Southern Ontario

Had the Unionville Turbo Beaver, great aircraft. The Hostetler Radial though, man, can't wait to see that come together. If I do a big one, has to have the OS radial on it!
