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"

Tonight's progress

Hooray! The left side cowl is burnished!

Here is the cowl in place. I'm holding the original cowl so you can see the louvers and beading we have to make yet.

We also lined the bottom cowl for burnishing.

Lastly, John and Martha Cole sent me this neat old picture. Look how they are stitching the wing - the same way we are doing it...except they are better dressed.

More soon. Enjoy
