This is what a good friend and great 049 planes and cars collector do with a Cox Helldiver in very bad shape; lots of work and skill.

The "original" plane receive fews coat of paint from the previus owner.
One wing is broken and glue not staight. Wings is from another plane

I gotta say...heck of a job Latole.

From a comic strip character to the real thing.

Beautiful restoration of a classic airplane.

Never would have thought it was the same plane. Looks great.

What did you do to strip the paint off, or did you just go over top? I had a beat up P-51 before that I soaked in brake fluid for a while and it just ate the paint right off.

Magnificent job of restoration.  I had the same plane as a kid.  after I pranged it, I set it aside intending to rebuild it.  I enlisted in the Air Force, and my mother got rid of my planes, thinking that since I work on real ones that I wouldn't need them any more.  Wish I could go back in time and fetch them,  LOL
I would hope I could get mine looking as good!
