Re: N1163H, s/n 15AC-176 Paint Scheme

Matt & Joe,

Many thanks for your replies. I can't find anything in what logs I do have...and N1163H has been all yellow for many, many years. Patterning our paint scheme after a s/n that is close looks to be the way to go.

Thanks again.

Tim

N1163H, s/n 15AC-176 Paint Scheme

Aloha Sedan fans, As we get organized and work out details for the restoration of N1163H, we're contemplating the paint scheme. We want the paint scheme to be an original Aeronca scheme, which I understand there were two...an early and a late scheme. Which is correct for N1163H? And what colors? Are...

Re: 1947 sedan parting out

The Sedan reached Oahu in as many pieces as when it left. Wally and I unloaded it and another airplane in about an hour. This was the first opportunity I've had to take a close look at the aircraft and there are no major surprises. The fuselage looks rough but seems to be in decent shape. The wings ...

Re: 1947 sedan parting out

Carl,

The Sedan will certainly be restored. I have a hangar & shop on Oahu at John Rodgers Field (Kalaeloa Airport, formerly Barbers Point NAS). I have a Baby Ace restoration project to finish and a few improvements to the hangar to do and then we'll turn to on the Sedan.

Re: 1947 sedan parting out

The Sedan is halfway home. While I'm away on business on Guam and in the Philippines, I con Wally, Sam, Marsha, Kele and Brad into flying to the Island of Hawaii, dragging their friends and family into the adventure...drive 2.5 hours one way to extract the Sedan thru a very tight workshop door and l...

Re: 1947 sedan parting out

Hello Sunny, N1163H is located on the Big Island and was shipped factory new to The Hawaiian School of Aeronautics (the Aeronca dealer for Hawaii). When you were stationed at Helemano, its likely that Hank Bauske and a few partners owned the aircraft on Oahu. The first knowledge I have of the aircra...

Re: 1947 sedan parting out

Matt & Joe, Thanks for words of encouragement. This is the Hank Bauske Sedan and its still in his house and workshop with the radar dome. Hank is now in his early 90's and still keeps active with projects in his shop...seems to be mostly related to solar power. He's an interesting and creative guy t...

Re: 1947 sedan parting out

Four and a half years and its time for an update. A partner and I have acquired N1163H. The aircraft will be moved from the island of Hawaii to Oahu this July. I had the opportunity to look at the aircraft and make the acquisition in May. No doubt the aircraft will require extensive repair and resto...
