    Rebuilding my "Hyper"-Chip

    Ibought this airplane in the mid 90's. It was already built and setup for speed (retracts, OPS 60 super) and I LOVEDit. After dropping out of the hobby for 15 years, Irecently re-entered and have been resurrecting some of my old airplanes.

    The "hyper" chip was the 3rd of my little fleet to get back in the air. It was flying great, but the engine was predictably in need of some lovin'...it died and Itried to make a turn back to the field (stupid!) at low altitude. Needless to say, there was a stall, spin, and crunch from about 30 feet in the air.

    This was the result:



    The rebuild:



    Fuse re-joined



    Ihad help



    Reinforcing the joint







    Rebuild turtledeck, repaired and installed firewall







    Repair wing (minor damage, luckily)



    Re-cover, install new canopy and new cowl







    Finished, and at the field on the first flight after repair

    I forgot to mention, this is a Goldberg Chipmunk kit (you guys probably already figured that out).

    RE: Rebuilding my

    Thanks! Yep...my son loves this. What's funny is I fly for an airline so we are both pretty obssessed with airplanes. I guess I can't get enough. Evidentally, when I'm gone, he talks about airplanes all day long.
