Restoration Update for January 2015

An update from Museum volunteer, Bill Findlay:

CMF volunteers Chris Northcott, Dave Beales, and Roy Demcheson are starting the process of recovering the Tiger Moth wings.  Poly Brush is being applied to protective tapes and wooden components such as ribs and spars – basically anything that the fabric will come in contact with.  Two of the four wings are now ready for fabric covering and will start to take shape over the next number of weeks.  Thanks to Rick Church and Langley Aero Structures for the use of a warm building in which to complete the task.  Rick will also be close by to keep an “inspector’s eye” on things as work is completed on the wings.
