Galileo Restoration Update - February 2013

Galileo restoration continues and we are making a great deal of progress. We have had a great deal of support from fans. Below are some highlight photos from February 2013.

Rear - before impulse deck built.



The impulse deck being built... laminating the layers.


From the front: coming along!


Part of the paint match process - an original piece of Galileo wood, and note how the colors in test don't come very close. Remember, the wood is old and the color weathered.



Impulse deck - assembled!!

And the landing gear being fit in!


Finally: we made The New Yorker - great article and a bit of "day in the life" of the restoration. Thanks to Tom Vinciguerra who is a dedicated fan.
