Quick Overview

Robert Mikesh takes the reader step by step through the process of aircraft restoration from the initial decision to prepare for an exhibit: Does it fit the museum’s aims? How will it be displayed? Will it fly? And of course: Is it good value? Initial preparation before disassembly are noted and then the principal techniques in working with wood-and-fabric and metal aircraft are discussed using many interesting real examples. Types of propulsion tires colors and markings are covered systematically and the different requirements for indoor or outdoor exhibition are shown. This book is considered the authoritative reference to the wide and complex subject of aircraft preservation and restoration.
