    After some months finally I-ARME arrives at home !!IMG_6886.jpgD8A723B2-879B-4EDB-930E-FD34F8111CBF.jpg

    The wings are ok, no corrosion.
    ARME has the original cotton fabric...IMG_6986.jpg

    Also rudder and elevator are ok.

    New gasket on the tanks, I hope without leaking.... I used special sealant for fuel and the screw with orings from McFarlane IMG_7285.jpgIMG_7658.jpg

    Before get off the engine I check if everything is ok.
    I did outside from my garage, my neighbour ask me if I want to fly without wings.......

    Thank you! Yes, the plane is in good condition, flew until 2018, towing banner.
    The engine has 1500H since new (year 2000) and the plane has 4300H.

    The only problem is my time, I havenít enough to proceed quick, the boss needs a lot of attention.... ❤️
