A lady asked me to make a biplane for her 2 1/2 yr old son and have it painted red. Like most of my projects, I find my inspiration from pictures on the web and go from there. This one is no different.

I found several pictures and combined the features and this is my rendition of a ‘Red Baron’ biplane. Constructed of Poplar and Pine. Body is from 4 pieces of laminated Poplar. Wings, prop and wheels all from Poplar. Tail section is Pine….because I had a piece of Pine that fit the purpose (for those who are going to ask :) ).

I tried to find a pilot for the biplane but couldn’t locate anything.

Hope you like…..Don

Very nice. Should the pilot be Snoopy or the Red Baron?
