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"

More work on the baggage compartment today. Bulkhead #7 had the lightening holes cut out. The drawing dimentions were smudged so badly, I had to take an educated guess - for those future Jenny builders, I drilled a 1/4 in hole on the one side and a 3/4 in. hole on the other.

The rest was cut out with a jig saw.

Here is bulkhead 7.

There is a small baggage compartment behind the pilot's seat, so the cutout was made in the same manner.

This is Bulkhead #1

The baggage compartment floor was also made today. Mot much will fit in here - it's only 9 1/4 in long and about 24 inches wide. People probably didn't have as much "stuff" as we have today. So, in 1920, I'm sure the space was adequate.

The plywood piece sitting on the floor will be used to make the baggage door.
