    How much is it out? Does it look to be purposeful or just a little welding distortion? I would
    think the mount would be 0-0 but I have nothing to back that up that is specific to the Eagle.

    Not Lexan in this case but yes, it's not uncommon. This one (finished in'79) is Plexiglass;

    Side panels and upper cowling of the angle valve airplane;10977I'm sure a photo from this angle
    exaggerates the way the panels mate which is great for my purposes.I'm trying to make this

    Zoomed in to the cowling and side panels;10975The firewall looks to be about 1" wider on each
    side at the flying wire fittings. The side panels hide the fitting and about half the terminal
    forks. I ca...

    The 1967 plans show the fuselage as 125.5" long with the top of the seat at 53.5". The Aviat
    factory plans show the fuselage as 124.5" long with the top of the seat back at 53.5". The
    "short" fuselage...

    Jim sent me some photos of two of his airplanes after some discussions about nose bowls,

    Neither the name nor the construction method ring any bells for me. They look to be heavier
    than truss ribs, it might be interesting at some point to weigh one of the standard
    (non-compression) ribs.

    Would taking on a partner in the S-1C get you where you need to be?

    Make sure you look at that seat Ray, those are awfully small tubes (1/2"?). The front cross
    tube should be 7/8" and the other tubes should be 3/4". I'm not loving the seat back design
    either as it wil...

    I believe the Pitts Model 12 and S-1-11 have not suffered from the problems other airplanes
    have experienced. Both follow the same basic design of having parallel lower longerons where
    the gear mounts...
