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"

veritcal fin

Worked on the fin today.

Here's the hot water bent lower fin after gluing the two pieces together. They are also held fast by countersinking several brass screws. You can see them below. This forms an inverted "T" section.

While that was drying, I cut out the grooves to accept the two hinge fittings in the vertical spar. The fitting centerline was set to 5/16in.

Then, the entire structure was glued together.

Another shot outside. During the next shop day, I hope to have the vertical and horizontal pieces cut and glued. Plus, I can do some trimming and fitting.
