    canoe

    I'm trying to find a canoe to mount on the skids of my piper cub... something around 16 inches long would be scale. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
    Matt

    RE: canoe

    I would look at Bass Pro shops and the Coleman stores. They used to have GI Joe size guys with different outdoor equipment. Possibly there's a canoe accessory.

    RE: canoe

    You've got to go with the kit. Those Chinese ARF canoes are poor quality and the covering is terrible.

    RE: canoe

    I went the simple route that plays the part well in the air. I cut out a simple foam canoe shape, rounded the edges, and covered it with red fabric. It sure looks like a Cub on its way to a favorite fishing hole while flying. This one is on my Balsa USA 1/4 Cub.

    RE: canoe

    very nice airportbum... and thanks for the idea... i may try that first. even though i'm about as handy as a screen door on a submarine, sometimes I can pull these projects off.

    RE: canoe



    I went with airportbum's idea, it turned out pretty good. I opted for the old grumman look, just sanded and painted the styrofoam. I don't have it mounted yet but here's what I got so far.

    RE: canoe

    Looking good - but the fuselage of a Cub is 22 feet. Canoes run 13 to 18 feet, with 16 being about the norm.

    RE: canoe

    Yeah, It's not scale but inorder to stay out of the prop and in my opinion taking asthetics into account.... this was what I felt worked best. I could have added another inch or so and been allright, but if you read my prior post referencing the " screen door" it should help you understand the outcome.

    thanks
    Matt

    RE: canoe

    You could always call it an Adirondack guide boat.

    RE: canoe

    Your canoe looks great. It is fun to add details like that. I found a couple pics of mine in its element.

    RE: canoe

    did you notice much difference in the way it flies? with a real boat haul i think the general rule is cut your load by double the external load.
