Hello dear model aircraft builders. Because of the pandemic, I am sitting at home, building new aircraft models and I got the feeling that I have not told you something in my articles.
Well, of course! I did not talk about the Convair XF2Y “Sea Dart” model, which started it all, on the basis of which I and many model airplanes have created many of our aircraft models.

And this model is a universal model and can take off from any surface, which is very important without a suitable runway.
The author in the manufacture of his model used 6 mm Depron, but we have this material difficult to get and I propose to replace it with a simple 3-4 mm ceiling tile or a simple sheet underlay for 5 mm laminate.

The front, stack of air intakes can be made of two parallel baffles. An internal baffle prevents splashing water from entering the electronics compartment.

Dear friends, I constantly use the materials of this author when building my aircraft models. And the principle of “skiing” for taking off a model from water or another, whatever surface, I use in my other models.
