Red's Baron was started in January of 1997, after contemplating plans from several different ultralight designers. Red's Baron is based on the Ragwing Special, which is a wood and fabric ultralight, resembling a Pitts Special. By changing a few areas, cosmetic and structural, with the OK of the designer, Red's Baron is an attempt for an airplane resembling a Stearman Biplane. ......A ride in a Red Baron Pizza Stearman was the inspiration for my project. The following is a record of the construction of my project, which has given me much pleasure, and a little knowledge, as I am a first time builder. The plane's construction was done with common hand and power shop tools, using professionals only when I felt that I didn't have the expertise, or couldn't justify the cost of a NEW TOOL.
