Wing Center Section. There is visible light surface corrosion on the bottom skin. Landing gear are intact- both scissors. There is visible intergranular corrosion on one of the supports for the left main gear. That is the only visible on the entire section.
Fuselage tubular and monococque. The tubular is in good shape, except for the rear longerons near the monococque attach angle. This was laying in the ground when I purchased the airplane, and is corroded. However, this is the only major corrosion on the tubular, only minor surface corrosion visible elsewhere. The monocoque is in fair shape. It was hit by shotgun blasts to each skin (4) on the outside. However, none of the stringers were hit and all are in good condition and appear useable.
In these photos, please note wing tips, empennage, front instrument panel, engine cowling, and a few assorted parts.
Outer Wing Panels. Two pairs of outer wing panels come with this project. The set shown is the best of the pair. These were installed on an aircraft which ground looped, damaging the outer rib of one of the panels. The second set of wings have the repair parts necessary to repair the set shown here
