    That's going to be a fine looking airplane.

    I agree. I like where he's going with this. Pietenpols are great that way, each builder makes them pretty unique.

    Scratch building is in a slump these days but boy, there's always constant activity with the Pietenpol crowd.

    The stitching along the cockpit edges reminds me of the cleated stitching on a WWI airplane like the SE5a and a few others. I assume there will be leather there, though? Whereabouts in Oklahoma is that (general area, no need to be specific)?

    That is some nice looking work and I like his logo. He must be one of my brothers. Airborne, all the way!

    Thanks for posting the photo; I didn’t know that there was a side by side Piet.

    I’d would like the idea of a sbs Pietenpol. This would be a solution for the taller breed of Pilots.

    One issue, dunno if it'd be a problem, with the pictured side by side version is that having a passenger or not would make a significant CG change. In the tandem version the passenger is right on the CG so it doesn't shift.
