Hi aero_max Thank you. No kit and no plans I have no money I am disabled. Every thing is scratch built with the following exceptions, The prop is xzoar 24/10 to scale Wheels are dubro modified a little 7", and the machine guns started with williams brothers. the rear gun sight, ammo belt clips, brass deflector trays and stuff I built using alot of reasearch. As you might notice I have no turnbuckles. Too exspensive! cant afford. I made my own plans with a lot of heavy research using real jenny build and period details combined with scale modifications to fly. I used a lot of fabricated scrap and recycled materials incorporated with much imagination I have no power tools not even a drill, Ouch. Almost ready to cover but cant afford to now. P.S. In some of the pics you see drawn plans. they came from Cleavland kit cutters. I got these after I built to this far so that I could compare and see how far off mine is. Im going to be needing a lot of pointers, direction and guidance from this point on. You are the people with the knowledge and experience I must continue to learn and apply,Thus It will become our project not just mine Thank you again.
