I started this model after making one from Russia (http://www.jt-museum.narod.ru/water.htm) the link supplied by Mike Hinrichs. Billy Leliveld built one and so did I. I wished to remodel the "plane" by there is a question about the legitimacy of that. This model is based on the link provided by Mr. Leliveld. http://mkmagazin.almanacwhf.ru/mk_ot...ekranoplan.htm Here is the paper prototype of the Hull. I am using boxes to provide stability between the formers to : 1st)Facilitate easier construction. 2nd) To provide a more sturdy model. This is going to be a toy that my 6 (soon to be 7) year old son can play with. I hope this isn't considered cross posting as my recent inquiries lead me to believe this was a better place for "member designed models". I will post my updates here from now on, as well as the eventual release of the model, if that is O.K.
