Default Bellanca - Lituanica

Hi,

I started making aircraft Bellanca- Lituanica model 118in wings and 65in long. Two brave pilots crossed Atlantic ocean with this plane in 1933, from NewYork to Lithuania (Kaunas).

Looks like it will be a very nice looking model. What engine will you be using?

I've been following this build, too.

Very nice work !

The structure looks light weight, to me. It'll be interesting to see what size engine is used to power this beauty.
