We are recovering our fourth set of Curtiss P-40 control surfaces. We recover the surfaces according to original factory drawings which makes for an interesting exercise. You will see in the detail shots here metal rods we fabricated are used rather than rib stitching. I suspect this was done to speed up the process however, the guys may disagree with that idea. Not the norm for the covering we do and thought we would share a couple of photos. A project like this is a pleasant touch of variety in the shop. This set will be painted by the shop completing the restoration Fagen Fighters & Warhawks Inc, where as the last set we did we painted camo to match an existing paint job.
