Curtiss Jenny Restoration

Welcome! We hope you enjoy following the restoration process of a 1918 Curtiss JN4D Jenny. Once completed, the aeroplane will be flown and displayed at the Candler Field Museum in Williamson GA (30 miles south of Atlanta). You can contact me below by clicking on "VIEW MY PROFILE"

Here's a picture of the new stabilizer. I have the leading edge tubing clamped in place while drilling the countersunk holes for the brass screws.

Here's a picture of the entire project (less wings). When my oldest son asked "Dad, where is the fuselage?" I pointed to a big bucket full of the precious fittings. "In there!"

The stabilizer and ailerons are from a Canuck, which differ from the JN4D. But, the methods of construction are similar.
