Grumman G-44 Widgeon

InteriorWorks had the honor of contributing to an extensive restoration of this 1943 Grumman G-44 Widgeon. The Widgeon G-44 is a twin engine amphibious aircraft, originally intended for the civil market. During WWII, it was used for small patrol by the US Navy, US Coast Guard, and the Royal Navy.

While undergoing complete mechanical and structural restoration by Aerometal International LLC (AMI), InteriorWorks designed and applied new paint with custom livery; and engineered and installed a new flightdeck instrument and overhead panel.

Healey 3.4 ExteriorThis gem of an Austin Healey 3000 is owned by one of our regular aircraft customers, and required an interior to match its spectacular exterior.

To achieve this, InteriorWorks proposed replacing the mismatched seat vinyls, curling and threadbare carpet, and cracked steering wheel. We performed extensive research to keep the restoration as historically accurate as possible–with the two requested deviations being the addition of a leather wrapped steering wheel, and the use of leather to replace the seat vinyl. The seat leather was cut on a grid with square perforation, to look like the original blue vinyl installation, and with the original-look silver piping. They were upholstered with a true “tuck and roll” technique, which looks exceptional, and also lends extra comfort to the driver and passengers.

Dassault Falcon 10

Our client came to us with the desire to refresh and modernize the interior of his Dassault Falcon 10. Interiorworks proposed addressing trim issues, replacing the dated carpet, and refreshing the leather seats.

 An originally installed cabinet had been removed to allow space for an additional seat, which left an awkward unfinished area, exposing the cabin door mechanism to the main cabin. InteriorWorks fabricated and installed a false bulkhead closeout to trim the area, which has the effect of hiding the door mechanism from view, as well as visually enlarging the cabin space. The existing 1970’s speckled and headache-inducing carpet was replaced with a solid-color wool carpet. All of the cabin’s leather was cleaned and conditioned.The work-scope for this project encompassed the replacement, rejuvenation, and addition of various components in the cabin.

The end result is a fresh, unified cabin that is both more functional and appealing.
