It stopped here (county airport ) for fuel. What most people don't know, it burns 22 gal/ hr at 90 mph, Ouch! It's a beautiful restoration.

There is a lot of history associated with this A/C. Google "Martin and Osa Johnson's African Air Safari".

Beautiful picture of the -39. Lots of struts and minimal rigging.

rayl, how about this one next?

By "lumps" I'm assuming to mean blisters or rocker covers on the cowl.

Thankx Ray I'll give it a try.

Seriously though: One method (however time consuming)is to; [1] Make your master "lump", seal it with thin CA or primer to make it smooth. [2] Glue it to a back-plate then apply a good gob of silicone caulk or tub/sink seal over the lump insuring that there are no bubbles or voids. Let dry overnight then peel the silicone off of your master. [3] Use some 5-minute epoxy to cast however many "lumps" you require. Almost forgot: Before putting you silicone on the master, apply some sort of "release agent" to the master and back-plate. "Pam" cooking oil works well.

Walk to a door, grasp the frame firmly with both hands, bash head into the jamb until you have acquired enough lumps:-) :-).

Okay, now how do I do the bumps?

Easy-Peasy {if you use the right glue) !
