  • BC12D metal stringers

    Hi

    I have just started restoring a BC12 D with metal stringers (G-BVDZ ex N96743)

    Does anyone have any details of the woodwork that needs to go onto the fuselage under the baggage compartment to support the ends of the stringers?

    Any help appreciated.

        Its a different part for metal stringers. The forward section in the second pic is stamped metal piece. I don't have one, but there should be a pic in the parts catalog I posted awhile back

              Depends on the year and how your plane has been modified over time. The ORIGINAL pre war planes were attached with snaps to hat shelf in back and the back of the seat sling in front. There were some pieces of wood on the sides to allow the snaps to be connected if the sling was too tight.
