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...

Ziroli Stearman power

Those engines would suit the 77” 1/5 scale perfectly.
I don’t think they would be a good match for the 87” model. For the 87 incher the plan calls for a G62.

Scale cockpits

There must be someone making these.
I need to know also. I have seen some very fine details on some planes. I could make up one myself but it wouldn’t be “right”.
With this modern new fangled 3D...

UMS 7-160 on 87” Ziroli Stearman.

Do you think this is just too much power? I’d like to have a 7 cyl.
The plane may come in at about 40”#. maybe a bit over with this radial.
it pulls about 36# wide open with a 28x10 prop, weighs...

Just getting back into it myself.

So many things have changed over the years.
you should go ahead and build another Menard’s Special.
I have gathered materials and hardware for a Ziroli Stearman.

43# heavyweight

I am hoping it doesn’t exceed 40# but I’m not counting on it 🤔.

The Ziroli is a bit more “portly” than the Flair

I have read that the Flair kit could be built as lightly as 25#. I will be following the Ziroli plan very closely. There will be very little modification unless I build it as a Super. It would look...

I know that your thread has been up a while

I got hold of Precision Cut Kits in order to get the 87” Ziroli short kit.
They told me that their partner who actually cut the kits was no longer doing business with them and that they were in the...

Saito 150 conversion to gasoline or Zenoah G38 to use in Ziroli 77” PT17 Stearman.

I have a 77” Ziroli PT17 plan that I have had in the floor joist above my work bench for a decade.
I have a Zenoah G38 and Saito 150 that are both in good condition. I wonder what you think of...

Thank you! Lost some inertia but will be back to it this evening.

Going to temporarily install control horns on the ailerons in order to set up my bell cranks.
Other ways to control the ailerons for sure but I like bell cranks.

Thanks Tom.

It’s been a while since I have built a toy.
I got started on this before I saw that others had substituted 1/4” balsa for the spars.
