Before the coppering could begin, each strut got one coat of varnish.
Here they are hanging to dry with two original struts restored for decoration.
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"
