Default Brian Taylor OS2U Kingfisher Build

I picked up the BT plans and lazer cut short kit from Bob Holman and will be building it as a float plane. My buddie has a slightly larger scale set of plans that show the float setup and I will be getting them scaled down to the same as the BT plans and applying the float design to my plane. I am quite impressed with the quality of the lazer cutting and the wood. The remainder of the wood I purchased here in MA at National Balsa in Ware. Quality wood, great pricing, and fast service. I picked up the same day I ordered. Will probably try forming my own canopies out of lexan. We will make the molds out of blue foam then fibreglass them so they are firm enough. Traplet Publications now owns BT plans and has the canopies and cowl but they are a lot of money to get them here to the states. We'll see when the time comes what I do for the cowl and canopies. Pictures to follow soon.
