How long do you want the floats?

Take your fuselage length and multiply by 75% for a starting point. but that is not always the exact length you need.

If you want 41" long floats Great Planes has a nice kit that builds up, they also have a pair that are 36" long.

I would suggest you contact Ralph Smith at E-mail address rvsmith@netzero.net. He makes beautiful floats. Foam sheeted with balsa, I have both his 40 & 60 size. The mounting hard point is built into the float. As I recall around $85.00 for the 60 size including shipping. For that kind of money I would rather have the foam mess in his work shop than in mine.

Maybe these, in the "C" size? I have the "B" kit, but have not started them yet. The material and instructions all look good.
