Seamaster II

Starting on a new project - a Seamaster II - a Ken Willard design - and it will be another electric powered model as all my airplanes today. The basic plane was built by Art Aube of Slowhegan, Maine this past fall when he built 5 at the same time - all were sold except the one he kept for himself. I have started working on the motor and nacelle first. Still not certain how it will look. This seaplane has a wing span of 48" and the wing is sheeted foam core. Art does these very well. The hull is built up balsa and the bottom section is reinforced with fiberglass. As I recollect, the plane assembled as shown weighted 24.5 ozs! Joe
