Hey Jerry. Looks great. What did you use for the plug wires? Almost looks like it is woven.

Thanks

here is the beginning of dummy . I used the Dave Brawn wasp and I modify it to seems like the Lyncoming..

I made a wood suport plate with 3 layers ply round and carved for the engine.

The airplane used a Saito 100 but I have Saito 125 that is almost same size and I decided to use it .

The plane is an old stearman sterling kit

Thanks a lot

In fact the last dummy engine was made in a saito 90 replying 7 cylinders made in pvc in a turn late and molding the cover valvles. The Dummy has a lot of work and looked nice, but was not scale

Some moths ago the stearman loos elevator servo and crashes. I began to rebuild it, and the most motivating to do this fixing was that I ordered the 1/6 dummy.

the airplane today is almost covered again

Regards Gerado

Nice looking Stearman!

Here's a video I made of my friends Stearman, thought you'd enjoy
