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

I have always dealt with Micro Fasteners in the US but I found another company called Fastener Express in the US that sells all the hardware in aluminum , normally a few screws will not make much of a difference on a plane but on a plane like this you could save a full pound using aluminum ..

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

Finally had some time to do the painting . came out pretty close when in natural light . amazing how much colors can change in different light , but it looks good outside so that's what counts . also machined up some brackets so I can use turnbuckles for my flying wires . lots of left hand threading going on today LOL .

Starting to put the parts together . All my aluminum hardware showed from Fastener Express but they mistakenly sent black for the cowl screws , not sure I like it, may have to reorder . The panel screws look real close to scale ,super happy with that ..
