The landing gear engineering was part of my reason for picking this kit!!

In summary:
The model is: 18% scale with 103” wingspan, weighing 33 lbs.; built from a kit by MR Aerodesign; powered by an OS Max 120AX two-stroke glow engine; controlled with Futaba servos and a Spektrum receiver; fitted with a BCM muffler, Glennis wheels, a pilot by Warbirds Pilots; and finished with graphics by Cal-Grafx, painted with Klass Kote. The construction is traditional, with laser cut ply forming the main structure, sheeted with 3/32” balsa, then covered with fiberglass cloth and resin

Re: Detailing a DeHavilland Beaver

Peter,

Thanks for providing the finished specs; interesting that a 120 two stroke is sufficient power.

The pictures of detailed model are awesome, especially riveting. It's been a long time seen I've seen pictures of a model that I could not tell the difference from full size.
But bear box just isn't convincing; no breathing holes?

Bravo

Re: Detailing a DeHavilland Beaver

Stunning, easy to see why it won best of show. The detail is simplu amazing!! I had all but forgotten about this build, but remember how much I wanted to see it done.
Congradulations on the completion and the big win in Toledo. I hope we get to see a flight video some time. Doug aka flytwice

Re: Detailing a DeHavilland Beaver

Finally, a real scale model. I'm still striving to get even remotely close to that level of detailing, after being involved in RC on and off since the late 70s. Bravo Zulu.
