The only thing replaced was the rotten wood and masonite. The entire structural part of the Galileo is original including the nacelles, wings, landing gear and interior steel frame. I compare it to replacing rotted siding on the outside of your house. That doesn't affect the structure or change the shape and certainly does not classify your home as rebuilt. That's my opinion and I know others have a different point of view but regardless; the Galileo is finally once again in great condition. I wish folks could appreciate and focus on that instead of pointless nonsensical arguing.
My apologies, I haven't been following this too closely. Regardless of my personal opinion of restoration vs. recreation, I do think it's very cool project.
