Here it is, ready to be fixed up.......

The plane was in really decent condition, and I was toying with the idea of a complete restore, a dip in the electrolysis tank, and paint, new knobs, even a new blade, but in the end, I just decided to rework it into a user, for now. I'm not saying that it won't get the full Monty at some point, but right now, I'm just too darn busy.
OK here is is, does not really look that different, but..........
