This Cowling Set came from a surplus WWI & WWII military surplus aircraft parts dealer in Southern California who used to deal in surplus BT-13 parts but they are no longer in business. All 3 sections of the cowling look very good on the outer surface without any patches. It looks like someone has repaired and/or overhauled it. On the inner formers there are some repairs with doublers.
Some of the heavy formers also have evidence of some corrosion. They have been painted with zinc chromate primer and have been in storage for many many years. The rounded notch on the inside leading edge skin on the bottom left section has not been cut out, however it is marked where to cut. I have taken numerous photos and if you need more detailed photos, please notify me. The dimensions of the wooden box will be 48" x 50" x 29 and it will weigh about 140 pounds.The item "WWII Original Vultee BT-13 Aircraft Engine Nose Cowling Set (3 Pieces) RARE" is in sale since Tuesday, January 24, 2017.
