The prototype Anderson Kingfisher was designed and built by Earl Anderson, a Boeing 747 Captain. It took him 9 years to complete, with the first flight made in 1969. Standard Piper Cub wings were used, and the result is a fun amphibian which flies like a Cub! Our Laser Cut Kit is from a 1990 plan from legendary scale designer Dennis Tapsfield. With those Piper Cub wings at 108", for 90 to 120 size engines, this is a beautiful looking and great flying aircraft.
We have improved on the original design with redesigned fuselage formers making up the front nose section, simplifying the build, and interlocking parts to accurately create the wing tip floats without having to do any foam cutting.
