As I expected, this one cleaned up pretty well. Last photo is the “before”. I’d really hate to sell it, but I do wonder what it’s worth.

Nice plane, Charlie! It looks like it was already nice before you touched it, but you really brought it up a notch. How much do you want for it? :-)

Charlie, great job! Wish you would do a “how to” blog on how you clean those planes up so nicely. The ‘before’ picture shows some rust spots on the inner body but the ‘in the after’ photos, they are gone. Did you spray the inner body black? Whatever you did, it looks like new. You have my nomination for “Plane Fettler Extraordinaire”!

She is a beauty. I think its “worth” anywhere from $160-220 as a guess. Very nice job, its a fine plane. well bought too.
