I started with Seabee plans from RCM. Those I enlarged by 1.41 to make the Seabee bigger. I plan to use a 60 to 70 four-cycle engine.

The plans from RCM has many dimension faults compared to a 3-view scale drawing made by the famous Bj�rn Karlstr�m so I had to make some modifications to make the model more scale like. The most obvious fault was that the cabin was too short.

Al right! You with sharp eyes can see that I have chosen an OS Surpass 70 FS. And the planking of the fuselage has started during X-mas -98.
