In Canada there is an aircraft company by the name of Found Brothers Aviation. Over the years they have produced some very fine utility aircraft. They are true "Bush" airplanes, and as such, have been convertible to both skis and floats.
This model is particularly suitable for a seaplane ... capable of taking off from the water unassisted, and putting up good duration flights. The model in the photo was drawn up on a Monday, and flown in the Flightmasters seaplane contest on the following Sunday. It flies as well as any other rubber powered sea-plane I have seen, but in a single week of evenings, the scale details were rather stark and the model only made it to second place.
The Model was purposely designed with a wing span of 26 inches so that Bill Northrop of MODEL BUILDER could shrink it down to Peanut size for the magazine. Because it is difficult to come up with Peanut Scale ripples, I suspect the larger model will be the more successful seaplane, so details have been added to the plans for a land plane peanut version.
