So.... What is it?

Take a look at the picture. First one to name it correctly wins a life time supply of propwash!

Ok so you don't really win anything except the deep satisfaction that you got it right!

Over a thousand views and no guesses?
I will tell you this. It is not a model.
It is full size and hanging in a hanger.

sort of shaped like a Curtiss Jenny, but hard to tell the size from the picture.

Yup that is correct sir!
It is being restored and the wood looks beautiful in person!

So what helped you identify it?

My buddy had the full-scale plans and all the wood bundled in his garage, and we spent the afternoon looking over the plans. The Pete is just a big model airplane, nothing more. Anyone who can handle a third-scale model can build a full-scale woody, it just requires more space (and more money).

Money is always a help!
In the same hanger are also several Super Cubs, Cub Cruisers and other airplanes in various states of (dis)repair.
I was there with a friend picking up a set of wings for his NE1.
