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"

Seat rails

Built the seat rails today. They were drilled and bolted in place level with the fuselage.



Here you can see the original seat cross supports in place. They came with the project and cleaned up pretty nicely. Also, you can see where the original bellcrank will go when I finish restoring it. This bellcrank came from Robert Summer's collection of Jenny parts. His grandfather worked in the Curtiss factory. Robert was nice enough to let me have it.


Below is Golden Age Air Museum's Curtiss Jenny project. Should be flying by the spring show season. Really looks good, doesn't it?


Enjoy
Brian

Looking Good. It'll be time for fabric in no time. What's the status on the wings?
