Stearman flight ready

Almost. Spent the afternoon working her over, and it wasn't as easy as it should be. The cowl gave me agita, wouldn't fit quite right as things are slowly getting a bit crooked. Its on, but daddy's not happy. I think too it has too much down vector, so after a break I will remove the damn cowl and toss a couple washers in under the stand-offs. I also rebuilt the wing tabs, replaced the lower carbon fiber rod with some rod I bought from Hobby Lobby and cut to size, then reinstalled the wings. For all she's been through she doesn't look so bad!
