Project Warbird LLC Salvage/Restoration

1. Project Warbird LLC Salvage/Restoration...

  Project Warbird  Salvage/Restoration is located in South Carolina at the Anderson Regional Airport, in the general aviation hangers. I am working on preserving our aviation history one part at a time. I feel that our aviation history should be preserved for our future generations to learn from, and our past generations to be honored for. I search all over the country to find aviation projects and artifacts. I will look in every barn, garage, airport, open field and wooded area to find these items. The goal is to get these aircraft parts and artifacts to museums, restorers and collectors that will preserve them. I welcome any help with my mission that you can provide.  Everyone knows that one guy down the road that has all that junk in his yard. If you know of someone that has aviation items, or you have some that you wish to part with, please let me know. If you are working on an aircraft and need parts, please see my (Parts for sale) page and see if there is anything you need. I look forward to helping you find the part you need. Here at Project Warbird I also can: Do complete restoration, from just parts to full aircraft. Do complete experimental aircraft kit builds, (VANS RV) and more. Aircraft maintenance, condition inspections, purchase inspections.   Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for and will...

Sean Barton’s Project

Sean Barton’s Project

  This past month, I was able to help Sean Barton in Missouri. He is building a replica radio equipment shelving unit from a Martin B-26 Marauder bomber. I found a FT-213 radio rack for the SCR-269 radio compass system. This completed his radio compass system and now he is working to finish his RC-103 and ARN-5A instrument landing systems. He still needs to find MT-28, FT-292 and FT-293 mounts to finish up. Sean is a amateur radio operator and plans to have this system up and running to use for demonstrations. He is doing a great job and I wish him the best with his project. Thank you Sean for sharing your project with everyone.                        ...
Tom Wilson’s shop visit

Tom Wilson’s shop visit

Last month I had the great privilege to meet Tom Wilson and see his shop. I can’t believe how impressive his workmanship is. He has a P-40K project that he is working on with his son. Also in one corner of the shop he has a B-17 tail section that he made from scratch. There are Kittyhawk parts sitting around the shop and also a Curtiss P-36 project. I love the replica P-40 he has out back. Meeting Tom and seeing his shop is a dream come true. The Curtiss P-40 is my favorite Warbird. Thanks Tom for letting me come over and seeing everything.                      ...
Martin Hennessey’s project

Martin Hennessey’s project

One of the great things about finding parts and projects and finding them homes, is seeing where they go. I was able to help out Martin Hennessey in Dublin Ireland with his project. He is restoring a Studebaker license built R1820-97. It is believed that these where used on B-17’s. He is doing a beautiful job. I hope to find more parts that he needs for this project. Keep up the great work Martin.                           4/3/2014    Today I received an update from Martin. He has most of the case back together and looking AWESOME!!! He is still looking for more items to finish out this project. So if anyone has any parts for this engine, please let me know. I know he needs a generator. This is where he left off for the winter. He is looking forward to getting back to work on it this spring. LOOKING GREAT MARTIN!!!!!     ...
