We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

I have a set of Longacre scales for sale. These were used for a racecar but will work fine for an airplane just as well. The set has 4 scale pads and ramps with the computer in an enclosed plastic box. Paid $1400 will sell for $825obo. 979-451-3251

A guy I know around Austin just finished his Skybolt he has been working on. It is the most beautiful plane I have seen. He just scaled it and it is 1080 with a 180HP. There are some light one out there.

No his scales. Maybe his are light to. LOL!!!! I think my builder having built 9 bi-planes before mine has something to do with the light weight. He had it figured out. The first time builder planes end up heavy. Thats why I am asking top dollar for my airplane.

I don't want to give out his contact info but I will tell him you are interested in looking at it or speaking with him. I may fly over and look at it soon. He was trying to make Llano this weekend but couldn't findthe rightprop extension.

Yes and a 540 is 150 lbs heavier. Do the math.

I look forward to receiving the info. Of course, you could just give me the full name and the airport...unless that's considered out of turn?

OK, you did ask: To get one under 1100, it has to be built barebones...typically, no constant speed prop, no inverted oil, no plywood flooring throughout, no centralized fire system, no fully vinyl wall lined interior cockpit, no canopy and mechanism, no smoke system - all of which your plane has. Now you do the math. I believe this topic was briefly discussed herehttp://www.biplaneforum.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3670&KW=
