Sterling PT-17 64 inch

Recently I was given a Sterman that had been built many years ago
it is a nice build with horrid covering someone covered it with tissue and painted with latex house paint.
The bell crank is something to see made from 3/32 plywood
and looked like it has a radial engine mount for something no bigger then a 19.
If anyone is interested in this restoration I am taking pictures along the way

The engine size to model size is understandable for the time period it was built in. My first 4 channel RC trainer called for a .15 to .19 on the plans but when I bought it used the plane had a 35 in it. The last time I saw it there was a 60 up front!

The big advantage of over powering a model is so that it arrives at the crash site quicker.
