6. Question: Will there be any payout for milestones completed?

Answer: No, the project is not long in duration.

7. Question: Having an issue with the FS 45406 Metallic Silver as a federal standard. Could the organization clarify/verify the number or is there an alternate number that we could use?

Answer: The Contractor may use DuPont 45406 “Aztec Silver Metallic” or another color that can be approved by the Project Manager.

8. Question: Due to the paint aggressively flaking, ( which is caused by inadequate prep work from the previous restoration). are you permitting for a full stip of the aircraft? This will allow for proper adhesion of the new coating. And a much better quality and longevity of the new finish.

Answer: Yes, the Government would like the F-86 stripped and repainted to match the historical markings currently on the airplane.

9. Question: Are all ground markings needing to be replaced? They are the small 1 inch and 1/2 inch letters around the aircraft indicating information to the ground crew.

Answer: Yes all ground markings need to be replaced. All markings need to stay the same as it is a historical airplane.


  1. QUESTION: Surface Preparation/Corrosion Control 1.1.1 of refurbishment states: All surfaces shall be chemically or mechanically sanded down to the bare metal surface. Precautions shall be made to insure little to no metal is removed from the aircraft during sanding operations. Paint section of refurbishment states: Do not sand through to bare metal, as damage to the aircraft may occur. No hazardous chemicals are authorized or shall be used for removing the aircraft top coat of paint. Can you clarify if the organization wants surface areas to be prepped down to bare metal and the use of chemical strippers? Also, if they would be oppose to environmentally safe chemical strippers?

ANSWER: The contractor can mechnically strip, chemical strip (if they rake care of the hazmat) or a combination of both. We do not have a preference, we just want a quality, prepped surface for the new paint to ensure a long lifespan.

2. QUESTION: What is the estimated height and width of static display?

ANSWER: 37 ft long, 37ft wing span and approxmitaley 20ft from the bottom of the pedestal to the top of the plane.

3. QUESTION: Would the organization be opposed to an adjusted work schedule or date if weather and/or base closures were factored to meet the September 1st deadline?

ANSWER: We are not oppossed to an adjusted work schedule- it just needs to be cleared through the Contracting Officer and Project Manager.

4. QUESTION: Would the organization be opposed to a panel replacement or a blended patch along the belly area where there severe cracking if the contractor has the knowledge and experience? While acknowledging professional and museum quality standards.

ANSWER: The Government is not opposed to those suggestions but it must meet the museum quality standards.

5. QUESTION: Is this display in a high traffic area?

ANSWER: The display is in a high visability area but not high traffic. There is enough parking nearby to stage your equipment.
