Hi, Robert. Post some pictures and dimensions of what you have. I'm working on a Bert Baker 1/5 scale BT-13 and might be interested in what you have. John R.

Is that a Burt Baker or American Eagle BT-13? The AE is 100 inch wingspan, the Burt Baker is about 84 inches.

The wing halves measure 45&3/4. Do they but together or is the fuse width added to that? I just now rolled the plans out, WOW, they appear to be hand drawn with hand written instruction's.

After closer inspection it appears the wing is 92'.

Sounds and looks like a Burt Baker kit. If the bag of parts has fiberglass scale like hinges, its a Burt Baker Kit. Now that I think of it, the Burt Baker was a 90 inch w/span. I believe thats what you have. The wing halves butt against each other, the fuselage width does not include the fuselage.

And I looked at the picture again, the Burt Baker comes with the ply bulkheads, the American Eagle does not. Its a Burt Baker for sure.
