MIKE ROACH’S MODEL AIRCRAFT

NON-SCALE DESIGNS

I build so few of these that each one can have its own photo

Here’s an easy-build seaplane from 6mm depron and few bits of ply, carbon fibre rod and alu tube. First flights were of grass and she flew off water a few days later, all in January 2015. The inspiration was a series of emails between Ivan Pettigrew and me about the ideal proportions of this type of model. This is my take on it.

Ivan's Lake Master

Ivan’s sketches compared with mine. There is a great similarity between Ivan’s Seagull and my model, hence its name Li’l Gull

Seaplane 101.1

Here she is on the grass and below, on the water.
