I came back from work today, after a very long break of 17 days, it was a really hard day since I had it to get use to wake up early deal with the traffic, the boss etc, I was literally dragging all day long, and to my surprise I found that the second No 6 I got on ebay was already waiting for me to start the restoration. Let’s take a look what I got. I think I’m having some kind of attraction for highly abused and damaged planes, I really love to see the restoration process being...
