    49" Model Aviation Grumman Goose

    Very nice. Plans from them, parts kit available from Manzanolaser.com

    WS 49"
    WA 396 sq."
    WL 13 oz per sq. ft.
    Two 370 size outrunners and a 3S 2200 pack

    A sweet, calm weather parkflyer size flying boat. I could be tempted by this one. I'd love to do one up like Smilin Jack's, from the old comic strip.

    RE: 49

    The Kohlman / Manzano kit and plans were a great Goose build. This model was covered in Koverall and nitrate dope. The interior was totally sealed with Deft. I used the suggested motors E-flite 370 1360kv with 9x4.7 slow flyer props. The weight was alittle over where I wanted to be (44oz) but it flies great. The day it first flew the winds were 10 mph and it still handled with no problems. Great model.

    Which Deft product did you use to seal the interior? Great looking plane you've got there!
