Hello Friends,

I have a good and strong Bee that is just sitting on my desk doing nothing, and I thought I'd give it some purpose in life. When visiting the Aeronautical Museum in Kbely, Prague, Czech Republic, I saw this plane, and immediately fell in love with it:
Avia B.534 1600px-Avia_B-534_3-view.svg

This is going to be my first biplane, so I have some questions:
- what scale (wingspan) should I go for to get decent performance?
- how do I connect the wing struts and cabanes? I see no feasible way to make the wings detachable, should I just concede to making the model one-piece?

OK, his seems to be 28', but it was originally designed for a PeeWee.
I'm thinking of something along the lines of 31'. I am pretty confident I can make my plane to be about half the weight of the Corky.
