If you're interested in scratch building a Grumman Goose, then follow this thread! There will be updates!
I've been working on new plans for a 1/5th and 1/6th scale G.21A Goose for a short while now from Grumman's sectional drawings
Once the plans are completed, the model will be built and inspected by a qualified giant model inspector, test flown, and I'll let you all know when I upload the youtube vids. Then the plans will be available once it's actuallypassed as 'flyable and sound'
I'm designing the Goose as a rather simple quick build model so any relatively experienced modeller won't get a headache trying to build one. (As you don't score any extra competition points for construction complexity, you do score more points for scratch building!
It's all balsa and ply,so you'll have to do your own waterproofing if you want to use it as a true ampibian!! However it does have provision for retracts, or you can fill in the holes with dummy wheels as a permanent "water plane", so build it however you intend to use it! Allmodellers will prefer to set their model up their 'own way' so after some feedback Ireceived a while back, you'll have the option to finish it however you want with regards to landing gear / waterproofing !
I'm trying to keep the model as strong and light as possible but I'll have the cowls metal spun on the lathe now. The wings will dissassemble for easy transportation (one reason why I didn't go 1/4 scale at the moment because of my car size!)
I've uploaded a sneak preview of some 3D photos of the fuselage half completed! Take a squizz and let me know if you're interested!
