« Part 9: Finishing and Assembly Part 10 of Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane series no next part

I’ve had a bit of a lull in my woodworking, but finally delivered one of the planes to my Project Manager Janice’s grandson Shadair. Janice said he liked it but wasn’t going to smile for a picture. I’m happy that one of the planes finally ended up with someone who might enjoy it!

Hi Eddy -

Thanks for the compliment! Yes, I used a plan – I made a plan then made the plane from it. If you’re interested, it’s a sketchup plan (mostly complete) at:

It’s based on a Boeing Stearman Kaydet, which is the bi-plane used in the Pearl Harbor movie with Ben Affleck.
