Center section and Step
There are also four wood screws holding the lower edge to the shim and longeron.
The last part of the step will be a piece of diamond tread which covers the exposed longeron. I will make this piece later.
Brian Eberly soldered four more wires while I was working on the step. We then turned out attention to the center section.
We have to finish tightening all the nuts and installing cotter keys yet, but this was a big psychological step!
Here are some more of Dave Trojan's photos.
This is one way to transport a spare propeller. Good idea!
Perhaps a 1920's modeling career was launched with this photo.....
Very few people had seen an aeroplane in 1920. It was a big deal when an aviator came to town.
But sometimes the aviator went home differently than how he arrived.
