Pre-Cover Assembly is complete and we are into cover this week on N44JP. A new Stringer cage has been built, is being painted OD green, will go back on the fuselage and cover will commence on the fuselage next week. This airplane has been totally stripped to the bone and brought back up. It's going to be one fresh Stearman. We have completely gone through the landing gear and installed Red-Line Brakes. The tail wheel assembly is all shiny and new as well. This will be a very stock, original airplane with correct markings. With N44JP and N966CD into cover and paint the paint booth will be VERY busy over the next month!
