    8' Otter scratch build

    I'm about to start a scratch build of an 8 foot ws Otter using plans enlarged from a 6 ft. ws Unionville kit a friend gave me. Has anyone built the Unionville 8 ft. Otter kit?

    RE: 8' Otter scratch build

    I did the 6'. fly's decently enough, but its kind of a pile of **** lol. its not a very scale cross section for the fuse and some of the material choices aren't really adequite, like balsa spars.. if i was scratch building from plans i would add a ton of things, like doors, and formers, and personal taste i would probably fully sheet it and paint it. the tail came out with a really nice shape though. should have tons of room under the cowl. i made a custom functional exhaust pipe on one side.

    good luck with her

    Thanks, I'll keep you posted. I may use several different mediums in this construction.

    RE: 8' Otter scratch build

    I now have the Print from the 6' Unionville Otter increased to an eight foot wingspan!  This thing is huge!  While overlooking the new plan I noticed it does not have the horizontal stabilizer and the elevator shown.  I must see a 3-view or get the general shape and relative size compared to the wing from somewhere.  Any suggestions?

    RE: 8' Otter scratch build

    This print only shows the very end of the horizontal stab and the elevator and has a comment to see scale notes-done as a cut away. There is nothing I can see the full size to construct from. I only have one sheet -do have more?
