So wanted me to build real plane. I started small model in size of these 2 models, but soon decided to add more than rotating propeller so the model got bigger and bigger introducing functions. With size of almost as big as Prop Plane (old technic set from 1988) I could not fit every driving controller to pilots position and it was really hard to manipulate it by child, so I decided to move it outside the model. I strugled with making retracting landing gear operated from cabin and still moving engine pistons and propeller and at this point I remembered, that the lego technic allready has some really similar and newer set. I actually build almost the same model introducing 1 function on top of it. I just have to flip elevator moving direction. Floats was then easy, because pieces needed for them were stil available. I was not happy with color combination so rebuilded the model several times. Even finished model isn't much color pleasing :( but it's the best I could afford from available pieces.
