You guys prove to the World that the seemingly impossible is possible. It's hard to believe how good she looks compared to when I first found this project on the web. Good job! :supz: :supz:

Just got the Aviation History magazine today. Nice to see the article on our project and my photos in it! :))

A video update from Rides with Chuck from last weekend.
Hope to have some photos for everyone to see tonight from that day.

hi everyone

sorry it's been so long since anything's been posted. Life has been very hectic for me so i've only been out to the shop a couple times since May. These photos are from last Saturday. As you can see a lot of work has been done.

Image

Image

the fin is now 99% complete with just a few small rivnuts and closeout items left to finish.

Image

turret ring is been completely repaired and just needs final riveting and then it will be installed.

Image

Image

Image

Image

many many new parts, bulkheads, repairs completed from bulkhead 8-11

she's really starting to come together!
