Here and there I have seen requests for information on where to purchase seaplane kits. GandP Sales offers about 10 different scale seaplanes. These are true flying boats, not just airplanes with floats attached. Most come with fiberglass bodies and foam core wings which makes for a much faster build. Bill Price, a master designer, has been doing this for some 30 years; he was just never much at promoting himself. Bill is a college professor who teaches fiberglas techniques, so you know the fiberglass work is first class. The website for GandP sales is:

Currently at Electric Flyer Magazine, we are putting together his Seabee. He offers this 71-inch span Seabee in two versions--traditional single pusher, or as a twin. We are building the twin version and converting it to electric. As I'm sure most of you know, the Seabee was an amphibian, so we are installing retracts. You can see it on the magazine cover at:
