Engine control quadrant. Power, carb heat, and mixture levers for the two piston engines are visible. The control cables will be routed aft over pulleys and terminated in bungee cords to give the feel of working controls. This quadrant controlled the two Pratt & Whitney R2800 16 cylinder piston engines that provided the 2100 hp each to the rotor.
S-60 sky crane rebuild! So cool!
P-51 Row. I love this airplane. Best aircraft in the European theater of War. The F4U was the best in the Asian theater.
New frame added to cockpit. The cockpit rebuild is going really well.
Overhead circuit breaker panel. A lot of deep scratches and gouges caused by 50+ years of corrosion. These will be filled and the panel repainted.
