Lower right is varnished. Metal LE and TE goes on today (16 August) and I need to replace the bearings in the aileron motion. And Phase I is DONE! Massive cleaning on the hangar and then on to engines and fuselage.
Fuselage is coming along as piece go back on. Time to work on the wood though while the temperature is up.
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.
