Nice! There 's just something about a RamRod that makes it look just right! Back in the mid 50's I remember this skinny guy, way off in the distance riding towards us on a bike with a huge model sitting in the front basket. It was Lee Hines, with probably the first 750 RR in the area.

Maybe we can talk Lee into building another one!

It looks great.  What covering have you used?

Thanks for the positive comments. Tail covering is Polyspan lite (5 coats of 50/50 dope), Wing is Polyspan with 4 coats of 50/50 dope.

Thanks for the detail Scott.  I'm about to build a Ramrod 350 and have been debating what covering to use for a nice traditional finish.  The Polyspan looks just right.

Bob, I use Polyspan on all my open structure wings and stabs. It adds a lot of rigidity to the structure and is not effected by morning dew (moisture). More pics. of 250 and 600 R-rods with Polyspan covering.

Beautiful work Scott.  You've sold me on Polyspan for my 350!  It's for an Enya 09-II.
