Growing up the B-17 was my favorite plane. I flew in them a few times. I have not seen that. I like my planes full size. My sidecar well sidecars.

I know nothing about it, but can admire the workmanship that went into it.

Some 25 years ago there was a guy who farmed off of Dodson Road just north of I-90 that had a very similar eye catching rig. Right now his name doesn't come to mind but I could find out who it was if that's worth pursuing... We moved away from the area nearly 20 years ago.

My wife likes it. Most important question: How much does it cost?
Number 2: where are you?

Saw this at IMS in Cleveland. Great build, looks fantastic! I have detailed pics, but it looks like you don't need them if the builder is on the forum. I was thinking if I rebuilt a tub, it might look something like this. Except maybe with machine guns.... LOL

I am in Pella Iowa. Cost is a tough question as most people don't understand to intensity of a project like this. Usually I break it down into the numbers and let you do the math because labor hours is more relatable. I have about 350hours of labor in this thing. my labor rate for one off metal work is $105/hr.

hope this helps.
