Half Scale Stutz Bearcat Sidewalker

So from the "Junior Mechanics Handbook" is the plan for a half scale, Stutz Bearcat, sidewalker, that I mentioned in a previous post. This is a challenging and interesting project for the all around workshop diy'er. It incorporates aspects of both woodworking and metalworking. If your looking to really impress some young folk with an awesome project, this one will certainly do it.

At 11 pages the project plan is quite complete, and leaves little to the imagination. I have learned over time to clean up and stitch pages together, as long as I can fit the page flat to the scanner glass. Over-size books that lift at the scanner edges, produce deep shadow and are harder to clean up, without effecting the scan content. Stitching pages together allows me to upload more pages in a smaller space. Resolution is good if you expand images to there max., I have no trouble clearly reading the images without my glasses, and believe me, I need my glasses for most of the reading I do nowadays. My pixel height is normally 1200 with the width, a ratio of the original.
