How about a Pilatus PC-6 Porter? I know Pat Tritle makes a short kit, Maybe he can make one. The size I am thinking is 44'' to 60''.  I want one with floats, skis, and bush tires. Thet would be neat.

I think he means something from 30$ to 100$ dollars, is that right. Guillows makes a Porter and a Beaver. Maybye you could check one of those out.

How about a 1/4 scale Noordyn Norseman Bush plane. This is an all wood kit from unionville hobbies from canada. The kit is brand new. I am asking $350.00 USD. STASH

AMR carries a kit line that you might be interested in, they have the Beaver and Pilatius Porter in a large scale. Not cheap mind you but nice looking kits.
Here is a link [link=http://www.amr-rc.com/index.php?path=content&SC=kits&SUBSC=kits to be assembled&sous_categorie=plane&marque=MR Aerodesign&page=kits&langue=en]AMR[/link]

Here's a zip file of 3 sheets in Jpeg format of a Turbo Pilatus. They are not great but may get you there.
Hope they help

Look for Unionville Hobbies kits.
Can be bought new from Great Hobbies.
They make a beaver, turbo beaver, norseman and an otter, all in different sizes. They are not the most scale of builds and are real builders kits. I have the 7' Norseman, and the 8' Otter, which I converted into a Turbo Otter. Both look great from afar flying by!

Top Notch Products makes a scale model of the Bush Hawk, a modern bush plane. It is a nice model... I flew the proto a couple of times.
