MR Aerodesign

Just recieved the full Beaver kit from Martin last night and I wanted to share my impressions with you all. I hope this is the appropriate forum for this.

I had seen MR Aerodesign on this site and after looking at the products for some time decided I had to order the full Beaver kit. I know some of you can't get excited about this type of aircraft but it's significance in the Canadian aviation industry can't be over stated. There are many great paint schemes including military, commercial and civil making it a good subject. What could be a better choice for rough fields, snow or water.

I was really pleased when I opened up the kit. The landing gear components, glass, plans and laser cut parts are great. To the best of my knowledge this has to be the best scale Beaver kit available. I'm sure that with Martin's professional background the engineering of the components will be excelent also.

I'm not in a position to say much more at this time except that the CL 415 catches my eye and apparently there are plans to make a 120" version available. I can just imagine water bombing boaters out on the lake. Easy fellas, thats just a joke.

hi Greg; Thanks for the feedback.

There are a couple of us here awaiting his Buffalo kit.

Some pictures would be great if you can do it.

Maybe even a buiding thread.

There really isn't much I can show you that isn't available on the MR site. The landing gear has been upgraded to a aluminum block with welded music wire. Martin tells me they are stronger and easier to manufacture. The fairing covers that part so the appearance is the same. I would suggest downloading the construction manual to get an idea what the build is like.
Looks a lot like real aircraft construction.

When Dad flew Hercs in Trenton our neighbor flew Buffalo's. His son was my age and we were friends. Wonder what ever happened to him.
