A look back

Left to right, top to bottom - a quick look at just part of the long, painstaking process of preparing the P-40 to go back into the air. (1) Preparing to remove the wings; (2, 3) readying the fuselage for a much-needed interior cleaning and stripping. (4) The still mated wings; (5) The fuel tanks exposed; (6) Wings separated; (7) The repaired front fuel bladder and the remanufactured rear bladder are installed and wings back together - note the now-primed skin; (8, 9) Putting the wings back on; (10) Let's see - looks like all the holes are filled!

More to come!
