Found out some information about Matt's Batt.  She was at Rankin Field in Tulare, CA.  Her USAAC serial number was 42-17488.  And until he washed out of Class 44D Jack Webb, Sgt. Joe Friday of Dragnet, could have flown her.

Fuselage is coming along as piece go back on.  Time to work on the wood though while the temperature is up.

Center Section is in the rack.  Lower left is getting the tip squared away with supports, the hand hold, etc.  Waiting for UPS to deliver the wing walk extra.  Already got the hardware off the lower right -- the last one.
