Beautiful project. That 150 looks absolutely tiny on that firewall. A radial will be the only engine to do this plane justice!

You inspire me. I enlarged plans for a Senior Telemaster to fit a 27cc engine I have. Have yet to start building, but I will definitely check back here often to see if I can keep pace with you. Can't wait to see your mammoth fly!
