    RE: R/C Bush planes?

    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.

    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 AMR

    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.
