Just finished the braces for transporting the wings , also made some fixtures so I can reduce the contact points of the flying wires from 14 to 4 points per side . takes about 5 min per side to assemble now . early in the build I changed the wing tube installation to make the wing tubes parallel so the wings could come off together . I will make some big square wing bags to transport them . Had 6" of snow yesterday so still have some time before it fly's.. .49.6 lbs and needed 3 oz tail weight to bring to factory CG .. hoping I have enough clearance with the 34" prop , Gerhard did tell me if I have clearance problems I could use a 32x18 3 blade but don't go any smaller .. This thing must have some monster torque ..

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

I wish Roy, the weather has been so bad here I've not even been able to bring it out of the basement . I did manage to go flying for the first time last weekend in Barrie, beautiful day but I really need some good weather at home so I can bring it out and set it up a bit in the backyard . That way I can get some gas through it before I bring it out to the field .I find things tend to get rushed at the field so I don't like doing setup there .

I can understand the field set-up situation, I usually do all my maidens at home, but I have a full size runway here so is easier. I have a 1/4 FW 190 to test fly hopefully next week. All the best when you get the opportunity.

finally had a chance to start the Stearman , the engine is unbelievable , started second flip and you barely have to move the prop to restart ,hardly even a flip .Even after 1 hr it just starts first flip . crazy . best running engine I have ever seen . I will put a couple of tanks through it ,set the valves and hopefully next weekend I can do the maiden ..I never let a new engine idle because oil distribution is poor at idle with premix four cycles . After a few tanks I will take a vid of it ticking over.
