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"

Rear gear leg fitting

Fit the left rear gear leg into the fitting today.

This fitting was an original Jenny piece, so it was neat to see it functional again. Some Jennies have two bolts here, others (like this one) have a single bolt.

Once again, take your time on this cut. Not only is it angled, but it's beveled. Plus, some reshaping of the gear leg was in order to match the fitting.

Hope to have the other side done tomorow. Plus, Paul sent the turtle deck patterns (lifesaver) so I will get busy cutting plywood again.
