I am in the process of building one of the best looking bi-planes ever, a Steen Skybolt.
The basic fuselage box, gear legs, and tail feathers were constructed by Steen Aero lab. I received the fuselage shortly after Oshkosh 05 and I began welding non-structural items, like combing attachment strips, mounting plates. I have since sandblasted, preped and painted the fuselage.
My wings are completed except for fuel tank completion. My engine is complete and I have modified it with a Skydynamics sump and cold air induction and dual electronic ignition.
