Just looking at it makes me want to climb in, rev it up & climb into the skies with a huge smile!

Probably the second best looking Biplane ever built. Mine being the first :D :D
Several years ago a guy built an exact replica of one including using the same engine. It is now in the EAA Museum. He had problems with the engine a Curtiss V-1570C Conqueror liquid-cooled V12 engine, 700 hp. So it was never flown and he died soon after finishing the plane.
