Default What is a Skiniwag?

Looking through the 1/2A pictures thread, I thought this said skaliwag on the top wing but now realize it is Skiniwag. Is this a one off or kit?

Drink another one! Now that I think about it, if I were on the other side of the question, I would do the same.

Hi Hollis, It's a kit, or at least it's going to be. Kevin and I have one on order. Steve has the cutting order in and we'll get them as soon as they get kitted. I think Kevin flew the prototype at SMALL this year in between rain storms. It's a neat little plane.

Should have the kits in time for our get-together at George's place in September. We'll get some pics up.

If you would attend SMALL these types of questions would not need to be asked. Ask anyone in attendance about a flying cow pie.

Radial cowl is a fine touch

Default Here's my wag!

It's a compact, fun little airplane with great wood in the kit supplied by Steve Adams of Select Hobbies. (I am bracing myself for the response to the title of this reply.)
