    Sure, but some of you have seen this one already. It's the C/L plane that Dad built back when I was knee high to a grasshopper. That would be about '58 or '59 for those that like to do the math.

    Yes it is Bill and the dope and tissue covering has deteriorated quite a bit since those pictures were taken.

    Re: Antique engines

    I wish I could find the attic finds a little more often. Here is one fresh from the attic. The Trexler wheels have seen better days. Serial number on the Brown Jr. would make this engine about 1936.
    Original gear, firewall, engine mounts, wheels and prop.

    Rusty & Crusty is cooool as hell!

    Here is a C.G. 1/2 A Viking that I built from a kit while I was still in school. Never did quite finish it but at one time it was all covered and partly painted.

    Very early Forster Bros marine. This is probably from when they were building engines in thier basement in the beginning.
