Robert Mikesh takes the reader step-by-step through the process of restoration from the initial decision to prepare for an exhibit - Does it fit the museum's aims? How will it be displayed? Will it fly? - and of course - Is it good value?

Initial preparations before disassembly are noted and then the principal techniques in working with wood-and-fabric and metal aircraft are discussed, using many interesting real examples.

I can guarantee that after reading this book, you'll never tour a museum without looking a lot closer and understanding both the 'how' and the 'why'. - WARBIRDS WORLDWIDE
