Film of EDO floats on C-47 1942 from factory

October 14, 2016 · in Aviation · · 9 Comments

This might be of interest to all. I found this on you tube while researching my water wings build. The film was made by the grandfather of the person who posted it on you tube,Robert W Martens, although my father did retire from the company and I myself worked for it from 1979-1990.

  2. Sorry for misleading anyone, he wasn't my grandfather but of the man who posted it on you tube.

  3. Sheesh...that thing must have taken a mile and a half to get off the water on take off.

  4. Indeed interesting footage, thanks for sharing.
    This would be a great subject for modelling.

  5. Yep - fine project indeed! Anyone got a good idea of where to steal some floats that would come close to matching those under the C-47? I've got a Skytrain in the stash...

  6. I think there was a resin conversion kit available in 1/72 awhile back.
