Truly a real piece of American Aviation History - One of a Kind

It is in really nice condition. I am told it is new as there are no drill holes in the hub, as shown. It was purchased at a Fund Raiser in 1957 for the Glenn Curtiss Museum. It is about 9 feet long and made by General Electric for Glenn Curtiss of Hammondsport, N.Y. who was contracted by the U.S. Navy to make the Flying Boats. Micarta from that era is very very rare and is a brand name for composites of linen, canvas, paper, fiberglass, carbon fiber or other fabric in a thermosetting plastic. It was originally used in electrical and decorative applications. Micarta was developed by George Westinghouse at least as early as 1910 using phenolic resins invented by Leo Baekeland. These resins were used to impregnate paper and cotton fabric which were cured under pressure and high temperature to produce laminates.
