If like our editors, you like WW 1 scale airplanes, and are looking for a way to spice up your vintage flying! Try adding water! Flying your Fokker or Sopwith off of water with scale-like 3-Point Floats adds a whole new dimension to the sport.
Featuring Balsa, Basswood, and Plywood construction, the new Balsa USA 3-Point WWI Float kits come with pre-drilled metal mounting tabs along with a complete hardware package. Pre-shaped basswood struts reduce building and sanding time, and the 1/32-inch plywood main-float bottoms help prevent damage from rocks on the shoreline. The kit is completely laser cut using the lightest materials possible, and each piece is laser engraved for easy parts identification! Just like all Balsa USA’s WWI airplane hits, the new 3-Point Floats are the easy to build and assemble very quickly. Properly installed, the floats will comfortably support a 22-pound airplane. Priced at $129.95 the kit comes with Laser-cut parts, Pre-shaped struts, rolled plans and a Complete brand-name hardware package.
Give vintage float flying a try! It’s had to beat!
