Not sure if this is the forum to post but seems logical to me.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience of restoration work. I would love to get involved in some large project but having no engineering background I don't know if anyone would have me, I'd count nuts and bolts in a box if i had too, just to be involved in a project.
I'm thinking of contacting Yorkshire Air Museum (only an hour from me), I hear their working on a few gems such as a DC3 but I don't suppose they would let be near anything. What if I did a part time engineering course or something?

Any views or advice would be greatly appreciated

Go and talk to them - most organisations like that are only too pleased to have more voluntary help and I'll bet you have skills that will be of use to them.

Yes - contact your nearest museum as I'm sure they'll take your hand off!! I'm involved with North East Aircraft museum and we are always looking for volunteers - no engineering skills are necessary as if you can hold a spanner you can assist. We always need more members as we have a large number of interesting (and unique!) restoration projects.
