Thanks for posting the photos, Eric. The model looks great. It is not easy to build, with all the ribs and stringers. I have spent way too much time down inside the fuselage of a Stearman, sanding rust off the tubing and re-priming it with chromemoly primer. Since I was the youngest person available, I got to do the contortion job.


That is a nice looking Stearman you are posing with. It looks to have the 300 Lycoming engine in it. We restored a Stearman for someone else when I had the FBO here in McAlester that had the 300 in it. Great engine for a Stearman. Most of my Dad's Stearman's had the R985, 450hp, Pratt and Whitney engines in them.


Your photos bring back old memories. Thanks again for posting them.
