I'm Building Two Giant Scale Floatplanes. These are my First Floatplanes. A 83inch CMP Cessna 182 and a 91 inch CMP cub. Both are finshed and fly great on land. I'm Looking for pictures of your Setups mainly for Struts-bracketts-pulleys- Water Rudders ect....... LETSSEESOMEINSPIRATIONALPICTURES !!!!!!!![youtube][/youtube][youtube][/youtube][youtube][/youtube]
I have Ralph "Seaplane" from Planefunfloats making 45 inchers for the Cessna and 42 inchers for the cub.
I wanted to go with Structural Aluminum Tubing so I found this tubing from Glen Torrance Models........I ordered 12 feet of it just to be safe :-)
I'm not Sure how Im going do to the bracketts or what to use for the Support cables that criscross between the Floats. (maybe rods and cleveses?)
I have 4 Large size Ernst water rudders on order.
I'm thinking obout ordering pulleys and cable for the pull pull rudders (I guess proctor pulleys are the way to go.......what size should I get?)
Not Sure how to set up the retract servo/cables for the rudders.
Anyways You guys should Have seen how long it look to do the lighting system for my Cessna. I want the Floats to look and function Just as good/realisticaly.
Thanks for the tips. I'll post pics of the build as I go along.
Here are a couple videos of my cessna and its Lights......it took a lot of time to get it to this point. :-)
I'll get a video of the cub soon.
