This blog documents my first attempt to restore a vintage aircraft back to it´s original US Army style. This bird was built in Lock Haven (PA) with Piper s/n 13157. Delivered to Army Ground Forces in France late December 1944 (mil. s/n is 45-4417). Still trying to find in which division it served, but this bird probably served the allies on their march towards- and into Germany.
Rolled out in June 2015 with maiden flight shortly after.

Making progress with the birdcage. All windows now fitted. Working on bending pre-cut aluminum strips to build the strips. Fun, but cold fingers... ( - 5° C in hangar yesterday..)
