Stearman Biplane

Submitted to Show Off

I was going through my parts box looking to find some inspiration and found an rmature that I had taken from a hard drive a long time back. It looked just like a radial engine from an old biplane to me, so I started drawing and making up what I hope looks like a Stearman from the late 1920's. The propeller is made from scratch from redwood stock that I had on hand. That was a new learning experience and my Dremel rotary tool did everything required to make it. The tires are "O" rings and the engine base is a brass paper fastener top. It went together very quickly this weekend.
