PostSubject: The Buccaneer Restored   Thu Jun 18, 2009 6:29 pm

I have been working on this plane for the last few months, trying to restore it to what it was when I built it 26 years ago. Sadly it will never fly... the wood is too brittle and fear it will crash so it is a display model now. I may build a flying one, but not in the near future. So here it is after a long rest in someones' garage. The Buccaneer.

I like this view the best.



The gun is 6 inches long and gives some idea how big this plane is.



This is the control linkage. It is made from tubular steel and brass sleeves. Gwen did the welding and then I silver soldered the joint to get a nice smooth finish.



There is an engine in the cowl, but it doesn't run. It doesn't even have a carb, head or piston. It's just there for looks. I still have to make the Iron Crosses for the wings and the build a tail skid, but for the most part this 26 year old plane is done and ready to display in my frontroom.
