Default Ziroli 87 Stearman instruction sheets.

I got the plans for this from Ziroli back in June.
t ordered a cut kit from National Balsa at that time also.
I have the parts for the lower wings laid out on my bench and I cannot find the 4 sheets of instructions that came with the plan.
they are very brief and only about to 4 pages. One of them being the bill of materials.
I could assemble them without the notes but would rather not. There were some good hints in them.
I hope that someone who sees this may have them and be willing to share.
I have left a message with Ziroli but have yet to hear back from them.

Hi OldBill,

I can email a pdf of the instructions. Let me know, so I can scan them. No problem.

I'm in the middle of building the 87" Ziroli PT-17, and I have it all sorted, but I can't figure out what the plan is for securing the wings. The aluminum tubes take the load, but what keeps the wings from sliding off the tubes? I can fabricate something, but there must be something I'm missing in the plans.

I'm also concurrently "building" a Great Planes Military Stearman 72" ARF. I'm stripping the Monokote/Ultracote off, and will replace it with Stits. The 72" will be a learning exercise for the Stits before I try it on the big Ziroli.

OldBill amd Kutcate, this is what I have done to the Stearman for the top wing to keep them in place. This is a system that I used on a Miester Corsair which it has work great on both models. For the bottom wing I just keep them with a couple of nylon bolts one for each panel.
Hope this works.
