Hey gang, the team has been doing a lot on the hull and engines lately, though there's really not much to see that's clearly noticeable as of late. We have been dealing with part shortages and the less glorified detail work, but were progressing along well. The engine cowling should be having the mold made this upcoming weekend, and Brad is currently working on the vertical stabilizer skins. Before you know it, we'll be splicing in the driver cowling pieces we have to make one complete unit.
The team was recently notified about the existence of one of the Squire Shop's drivers cowlings, which we confirmed was from the teams display hull in the 80's (U-55 Lincoln Thrift hull).
We are doing our best to try and acquire it for the restoration project and we will let you know if we do. But for now, here's what it looks like currently. The "missing" back half exists as well, it's just not shown in the pictures.
Also, check out the "Treasure Hunters" page for our latest "original parts" updates, fyi.
