From Ken Ramsay: At today’s membership meeting, Kim presented a review of 2020. Yes, things had gone to hell in a hand basket, but for 2021 we are implementing programs to make this year successful for MAPS.
Some panels are missing from the F-105’s afterburner area. So far I have made 2 replacement panels, but how to make shiny aluminum look like titanium. Run the panels through my dishwasher a couple of time. Gives a nice grayish brown patina to the aluminum. I have no idea why, but it works
Lots of work on the F-102. The crew is painting it in the traditional camo colors. The underside will be light gray. (Photo above also.)
Bill and Carl are working on replacing the damaged windscreens on the F-102.
The Eagle Scout candidate and his crew painted the guard shack which is his Eagle project.
High altitude work on the H-19. I’m told that it is warm up there.
