Default Re: I still need float-rigging info

Paul-
I have a question regarding that blue, red, and white Kitfox IV....it is the only one of the planes pictured that has the diagonal brace starting from the rear fuselage bracket and going forward and down. I have been told that the diagonal brace (on float-equipped planes)will start at the fuselage directly above where the original landing gear was mounted...or near where the original main wheel was. So, if that is true, that would make all the other pictures of Kitfoxes (that you posted) appear to have been originally tailwheel planes, and the blue, red, and white one would have been a tricycle gear plane originally? Just curious...
