Project Description

Grumman Goose Sea Plane

Client: Caesars Palace

Location: Margaritaville Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio

Key Objectives: Create a scale replica of Jimmy Buffet’s Grumman Goose Sea Plane.

Challenges: In order to be compliant with local fire code, we had to work with a fire suppression company to incorporate sprinklers into the design.

Strategy: Using a 3D file of the Grumman Goose Sea Plane that we modified, we built an internal structure clad with carved hard-coated foam. We also incorporated automated custom propellers and illuminated fuselage.

Result: The result was a beautiful exact replica of the Grumman Goose Sea Plane, with a 19-foot wingspan. After Margaritaville Cincinnati closed, the plane was relocated to the Mall of American in Bloomington, Minnesota.
