    It's crazed really badly. Get some 600 grit on it. I sat in it and closed it. The windscreen is better, yellowed w delamination evident. You cannot go by the pics on it.

    you read my mind... nice! I did a bit of research in some documents I received from the curatorial staff. During the initial repair work on the tail in 1992, it was discovered that the Wright Field engineering had made some structural "enhancements" to the wooden tail unit. Apparently they believed the structure was compromised, and they attempted to bolster it with steel plates internally, (which resulted in moving the horizontal stab several inches forward.) The steel plates were removed and the tail restored to its original configuration during the restoration/ repair by NASM. This would explain why you see the patch work of lighter paint on the fuselage around the stab.

    Good news on that image! I don't think most of the people who work at NASM restoration shop have ever seen the top of those wings. Some who are long retired... maybe. What that image does show is the preservative oil leaking through the skin panel joints.
