    Fantastic project! Will you be restoring it all the way to air worthy condition?

    And where are you building it? Your avatar says Jyväskylä, but is it correct. I might pop in just because I happened to 'be in the neighborhood' if it's in public enough place and you don't mind a quick visit from a fellow enthusiast :)

    Personnally I am rather sad that this largly original aircraft is being restored. I liked it in the tatty but original condition.

    If 'restoration' had to be done then surely only anti-corrosion treatment would suffice. The Australian Bf 109 is a very good example. Every paint chip, scuff and dent has a history of it's own. If I wanted to see a pristine example then I would buy a Corgi metal replica toy or make a scale model.
