Restoring Museum Aircraft
|PUBLISHED (THIS EDITION):||September 1997|
|INSIDE:||327 colour and b/w photographs|
Robert Mikesh takes the reader step-by-step through the process of restoration from the initial decision to prepare for an exhibit - Does it fit the museum's aims? How will it be displayed? Will it fly? - and of course - Is it good value?
Initial preparations before disassembly are noted and then the principal techniques in working with wood-and-fabric and metal aircraft are discussed, using many interesting real examples.
I can guarantee that after reading this book, you'll never tour a museum without looking a lot closer and understanding both the 'how' and the 'why'. - WARBIRDS WORLDWIDE
