That is a great useable size for more modelers. The Unionville kit is surprisingly popular, but it is sooooooo far off scale, that I would never consider it. This, however, is interesting. Float mounts would be a must, though............

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

Where's The BeefAllo ? ;-)

I'm standing in line behind JD for a Buffalo kit for sure

Twin gas engines for sure.

Like the other guys say : Any true scale Beaver is a great one.

I like the bigger ones that take a gas engine but most guys do not have truck to carry their aircraft in, so the smaller version would probably be the most popular.

Good Luck anyhow

Thanks for all the answer guys. My project order are a little bit more defined now..

1- I have nearly finish to re-design the old Aero 3D (a 3D plane I have designed some years ago). I will completly finish this project very soon.

2- Finish the float and float setup of the 103" Beaver.

3- Finish the 103" Turbo Beaver kit.

4- Finish the update of the small Cessna 185.

5- Make the small Beaver (probably 90" of WS).

I have also think to make a scale trainer. My choice stop on a Canadian build kit plane, the Pelican.

Why I choose the Pelican ?
-They are simple shape, high wing aircraft.
-Can be made tricycle, tail wheel or on float.
-They have flap.
-They are Canadian.

About the kit I will design.
-Wing strut available but optional
-Flap will be in option
-Posibility to make it tricycle, tailwheel or on float very easely (and the possibility to build the aircraft at the start for the 3 option without big modification.
-Easy to build and fly.
-One kit for .46 engine and another one for .60 engine.

The goal are to have a scale trainer, and also upgradable to follow the skill of the pilot. Start with the tricycle configuration, when takeoff/landing become too easy, put the tailwheel and add the flap. Too easy again, fly it on float !!

What did you think of this idea ? Did you think it's a good potential seller ?

By the way, I have now my own laser cutter. I will offer the cutting service. I need to make a new section of my website for that but I don't think I will be able to make it before some weeks only but can take order before... Contact me directly for more info !!

Yes, I would definately be interested in the smaller Beaver, with floats, of course.

You would be also be able to interest me in a smaller Norseman (that's truer to scale than the others already out there), again, with floats. It's Canadian as well.

What would be really cool is an 80" Noorduyn Norseman. Same reason as given for the Beaver, Unionville kit is way off scale.
