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"

Fuselage Table

Well, the fuselage table top was built today. Nearly 24 ft long and 34 inches wide. I decided to taper the table along the fuselage lines to conserve space in the shop. The table is nearly 8 inches wider than the fuselage, and slightly longer.

Tomorrow, I hope to have the supports in place and the legs built. From there, I'm going to lay out the jigs for the longerons, which will be steam bent. (that process will be neat - stay tuned!)

When all four longerons are bent, then the fuselage will be assembled upside down (you'll see).
