We strive to move all our projects forward. It would often not be possible without the help of our friends. Undoubtedly, the guys from Let RePair are one of the most important. We haven’t brought any news from their workshop in a long time, but this one is worth it. One of the important milestones of the Bf 108 project, the complete reconstruction of the wings, is ready. When the time comes, we will be able to paint the internal parts with RLM 02 and install wiring.
In the photos you can see the whole process of riveting individual panels up to complete wings.
The Queen Mary trailer project is coming to an end, so it’s time to start something new. We pulled our GMC CCKW 353B from the warehouse and set off for the workshop. There will be a lot of work on it, but we believe that the result will be worth it.
Today we were able to test the pilot seats for our Messerschmitt after a complete overhaul. After sandblasting and defectoscopy of the seat belt anchorages, we now have seats in the standard color RLM 02. We have also tested them with original wooden seats. These underwent a relatively demanding repair, but we could leave them for operation and did not have to make copies of them. Now they have a trip to the upholstery and then they will just wait for the rest of the plane. Here you can see what it looked like after removing it from the plane, before starting work.
To our great regret, the original wooden seat cushion for the rear seat of our Messerschmitt Bf 108 could not be repaired to withstand everyday operation. All that remained was to start producing a new one, based on the original model. The result is unrecognizable. Now upholstery awaits him.
