The pilot of a tailwheel-equipped airplane reported that he was doing S-turns while taxiing and that he did not see any airplanes in the run-up area. While positioning the airplane in the run-up area, his airplane’s left wing collided with the propeller of a stopped airplane. 
The pilot of the stopped airplane reported that, after completing a run-up and waiting for a clearance to depart, he saw a "warbird" entering the run-up area. The other airplane continued straight, and the left wing collided with his airplane’s propeller. 
The tailwheel-equipped airplane sustained substantial damage to the left wing.
Both pilots reported that there were no preimpact mechanical failures or malfunctions with their airplanes that would have precluded normal operation.
