Chris/AJ1G mentioned this aircraft over on the Milsurplus list and was curious about its current state. Since attachments on the qth.net lists are restricted to 250k, I figured this is a good place to post a few photos of the restoration, including some of the radio gear. These were taken last July, so no doubt it is much further along.

Flak Bait is well known as a WWII high-mission survivor aircraft and has been the basis for several radio compartment recreations, including this one by K4CHE:

Here are a couple shots of the radio equipment laid out on a table and on shelving next to it. Also a shot showing reference photos.
