The Ziroli Treatment — A great Makeover for the new E-Flite PT-17

The Ziroli Treatment — A great Makeover for the new E-Flite PT-17

Two “RC spark plugs” that provide lots of excitement in the our hobby are Nick Ziroli Sr., and his son Nick Jr., who is the owner/operator of Ziroli Giant Scale Plans (ziroligiantscaleplans.com). Recently, when E-Flite came out with their new midsize PT-17 ARF, both Nicks took notice. You see, Nick Jr., happens to own and fly at vintage Stearman biplane and Nick Sr., has designed a couple of great flying models of this military primary trainer biplane.

Nicks Jr., and Sr., pose with the new madeover Stearman.

Nick Sr., got his hands on one of the new  E-flite PT-17 ARFs and quickly repainted it to match his son’s beautiful Stearman which is painted in US Navy colors. Here are a couple of photos of the newly made over ARF and we have to say, it looks great. Watch for an upcoming article in MAN showing how Nick used common latex paint to transform the all yellow E-flite ARF so you can do the same thing with your Stearman. Watch for a detailed How To article coming soon.
