RE: Howard Pete and balsa selection
Off topic, sorta, but did you know the original Howards, Mike and Ike, are being refurbished/ restored? The owners still have an original Menasco 6 cylinder engine that will be used. If this happens it'll be the first time in over 75 years that an original racer with an original Menasco 6 cylinder engine will take flight! Good luck with your Pete! It is really a cool airplane! I think a 'Pete' model won the very first 'Postal Free Flight' contest, too!
