    Wow! Didn't see that many lows in the base picture! Looks like you're doing OK.

    Stick and paper model in a 1:1 scale!

    It just doesn't get any cooler than that.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    Now there is a project I'd love to try one day. I much prefer working with wood, than with metal!

    Not a radial with that exhaust header, but an inline. Looking up SE5 Biplane, it's a 150 hp (112 kW) Hispano-Suiza 8, a V8 engine. Lots of info available about the plane, including plans! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_A..._Factory_S.E.5

    Thats correct Roger. For anybody who thinking working with wood can be fun your right when making a camp fire ! Its fun but at times can be verrry frustrating when your trying to keep the cuts to within .010" along with multi angle cuts. Its not like I can put very piece on the mill and use the DRO . Biggest problem is making All of the wood contact All of the metal. The bolts are only there to hold the wood in place not to hold the tension/pressure. I'll get a picture of the engine were using and post it, its interesting. I'll keep the post going as more developments occur since you guys seem to like it.

    As for my truck I sanded a bit more on the roof and gave it another coat of epoxy, had lots of bare metal showing.

    Nice roof work on your cab. That airplane project does look like a blast! I'm sure it's a PITA! Either the wood is bowed or warped or both I bet, making it so fun. Haha

    Very cool old V8! Wish you were closer to NE Kansas. I'd love to swing by and watch the progress occasionally.

    For me wood is just an easier medium than metal, but I took wood shop classes in high school along with auto shop, and have done woodworking and carpentry for 30 years. Metal shop on the other hand I didn't take! If I am worried about a precise cut on wood, I simply cut a little long and then sand to where it needs to be. Welding I end up making a mess! I imagine on a plane regauadless of the medium your working in, precission is going to be vitaly important for structural integrity! I never meant to imply rebuilding a wooden plane was easy, nor do I believe did I say that, just commented that I prefer wood to metal.

    One of the most challenging wood working projects I ever attempted was making a pencil post bed with 8 sided tapered vertical posts that had a floating mortis and tennon headboard. Thank god for good plans!
