Default What Biplane is this?

I have owned this plane for many years now and I still have no idea what Biplane this is. I have searched all over the net and still no luck. Before I go and sell this I want to find out the name so I can post it. Maybe someone can help me out. Thanks David

It looks very much like a Waco Model E "Aristocrat"

Thanks for the info. Your right it does look like a Waco AGC-8. I purchased this from a professional builder many years ago and I wasnt sure if he hand built the peices or if it was from a kit. Do you know of any RC manufacturers that sell a kit like this?

Dimensions would help determine what kit, if any that it came from. Sterling and Royal both produced them, along with several lesser known mfgr's.

I had a flight in a full-scale Waco many years back in Fredericksburg.
One had just been restored, and the owner wanted some passengers.
We were at the field there flying toy airplanes and hopped in.
This one had overhead windows which were nifty for looking out when the plane was turning...
Had to be 60 years ago.

I fly with a fellow that has the same plane and looks to be about the same size too. He also doesn't know the exact model number, he bought it used from someone. We just call it the WACO Stager Wing?? Very nice flying plane too.
