    Convert that pic to B&W or sepia and it's an instant classic! Nice airplane to be in, even if you only got to first base in her. :righton:

    Why? Did the Red Baron finally shoot down your doghouse??

    I thought he had retired years ago and went into the pizza business

    I was building this airplane up till two years ago. Too expensive so I sold what I had and purchased a 1984 CJ-7 with a chevy 350.

    82% Scale 1933 Curtiss P-6E "Hawk" bi-plane fighter powered by a Chevy 383 Stroker.

    True, but at least the Jeep is mobile unlike the aircraft. :righton:

    That's funny as I was kicking around selling some jeep projects and parts to start an airplane fund!
