I just got a Piet and would love to fly with some others sometime. Anyone around Bremerton area?

Well, Jake Schultz in Issaquah is/was building a steel-tube frame Piet with a Rotec radial, but it's not flying yet and he's been AWOL from the list for awhile. I don't know of any others.

Hey, nice airplane! Can't quite make out the graphics on the side of the fuselage. Got any other pix? And what size are your tires? I have 6.00x6s on my airplane right now but also have a set of 8s in the hangar that I'd like to put on it instead. I like the look of the slightly larger tires.

These are 21x8.00x6 tires. They really roll over rough ground and sticks nicely.
The decals said Ulrika Trans Global. They are removed though. Wasn't a big fan of that.

I would love some big spoked old fashioned tires. One day...
