Yeah the Gullwing really catches my attention....I didn't save any pics with the designer...but all the wingspans were over 50 inches, most were around 6 feet or larger.

Can you imagine these planes ROW freeflight over the lake with the chase boat???

Must of been a great time....they all survived and are in either his workshop or 4 in the air museum.  Amazing...wish I'd been able to see that.

I finally found out this is only a model...by K. Kousma from Finland...I found an old thread that is quite interesting but most of the links are nolonger functioning K Kousma's Sea Birds

This particular model was apparently the 17th design...T for Tern (sea bird)
last pic is his 10th design v-tail .... they were all free flight or limited RC with diesel power Cheesy Grin Wink Cool

Hi...

Was intrigued by this Seaplane...only notation is T-17 3

This picture is of a model...so I'm not sure there's a real plane at all....any help will be appreciated.
