Does anyone have a set of the older style CH701 / CH601HD Zenith / CZAW floats?

I'm bored these days without a project, so I'm thinking my CH601HD would be cool to fly on floats. Anyone have a drawing for the front steerable nose gear. If I remember these were compressed air operated.

Hi Bob,
As you can see they are amphibs. I got plans for the 1350 lbs amphibs which are the same as mine but bigger. Also in there, the nosewheel extension and retract mecanism. I know my CH701 would be great on those but no place to go. Also, I'm building a CH750 so will concentrate on that for a while...

What about your CH701? Its a great float plane.

Are they wheel floats or the straight version?

Hi Bob,

I got the floats with the rigging for a CH701. Installed but removed before they could be used.

They could maybe exchanged for ???

Lets talk.
