In 1947, the de Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada introduced the DHC-2 Beaver aircraft. They produced approximately 1600 before ceasing production in 1967. Known by some as the "workhorse of the north", the Beaver has been instrumental in the development of modern frontiers around the world. It is also the first single-engine utility aircraft to be turbine powered with de Havilland producing over 60 Turbo units before production ceased.
Where model aeroplanes are concerned, the devil, they say, is in the detail and in this respect Seagull’s DHC-2 MK.3 Turbo Beaver ought really to have horns, a trident and a pointy tail. Take a closer look and you’ll be bowled over by an attention in Seagull’s design studio that not only brings hinged and locking scale cockpit/cargo doors, outstanding graphics, landing lights, undercarriage fairings, aerials and engine exhaust stubs, but the possibility of fitting an optional float set and turning your DHC-2 into a versatile scale model with undeniable appeal. For those who love civil utility aircraft, the Beaver is a firm favourite and in this colour scheme it looks an absolute treat.
So, what will you need to fit it out? Well, any 20 to 30cc petrol engine, equivalent four-stroke or alternative electric set-up should be first on your list, closely followed by seven Hitec servos and anything else you care to pop in to make it all function. Practical, pretty, and perfectly formed you’d be mad to pass it by.
