Made the rest of the aluminum panels . the supplies screws are far too small and flat head . the factory uses a phillips head dzus but they sit flatter then the screws I have I will have to see if I can find ones that sit more flush ..

Ok Roger, that beast is too big for the RC 400 Club. You are going to confuse the people driving by on the highway.

Re: 1/3 Stearman / Valach 250 radial build .

found some cap head screws that have a better profile and diameter then the phillips .Also made the hatch fasteners ..took a picture of the real plane beside my hatch ,look pretty close .. now time to tear it down again and paint it ..the screw locations are a bit frustrating because the cockpits are not in the scale locations .just have to wing it LOL and make it look a close as possible ..

Re: 1/3 Stearman / Valach 250 radial build .

Top wings done , just the center section and the lowers to go. I won't do the final shrink until the wings are installed . These wings are quite flexible without the flying wires so I want them held installed and held solid when I do the final shrink.. I have the paint in now so on the first nice day I will get painting . Hopefully before the bugs come out LOL.
