I'm building my Peanut Eindecker at the moment. Making the spoke wheels now.

You build spoked wheels, you are a brave one!
I would love to see some pics too.
I never tried to build some of them. Or let's say, I dont want to talk about it :?

Ludo, you are a fast builder... Your son will love the orange bird. My last Redwing was orange too, but with Esaki finish.
I will put mine on a scale to compare the weight as soon as it is in the same stage.
To redo the wing covering was a good idea, it looks much better now. As soon as the temperature outside is above 0 degrees, I can start with doping.

Where is that Micro Pitts plan available?

Thx Monique. Pic of noseblock and laminated wingtips. Micropitts has plain balsa wings and tail, I go for built-up. Don't know motorisation yet, maybe freeflight with condensator, maybe micro-rc.
