Davide and everyone,
Here is something that can help make all interior wiring look nice. Not just look nice, but you can split off a branch and still cover it. This is great for bundles that are already complete and have the connectors too large to fit through normal braided sleeve. Lots of colors so you can color code your bundles. Go here to this link.
Cheers,
Nigel

Hey Davide!! I just realized you have the same parts in the forward bulkhead that Jay has. The whole front mount for the HUD. Before you cover it up we need very detailed pics and dims.
Thanks, Nigel

Davide,
Great job on the skinning.  I can hardly recognizre the trainer.  I feel like I have trainer children all over the world now.   hehehehehehehe.   For those that don't know I used to own that trainer when it was just a bare metal skeleton.  It seems to have travelled all over the world and now has a good home.   Its actually a pretty rare item.   There are only 19 of these trainers left in the entire world.  I talked to the program manager in the military that is in charge of all the trainers and he gave me the history on this trainer. 

The trainer was actually bigger when i first got it.  The trainer has the cockpit section which sits on a heavy steel frame and there used to be another steel box frame under that which added another 2 feet to the height and 1000 pounds to the weight.  I removed that section and scrapped it as it was just far to big and heavy.    When I first bought the trainer I had a tough time getting it in a truck and back to my garage since it was so dang big and heavy.

The trainer is a Weapons Trainer and has lots of room for all the computers it used to have.  There is one at the WPAFB museum and a few in storage.   But with only 19 still in existence its actually a pretty cool thing to own.  GREAT JOB DAVIDE !

Davide, one of these days I'll post all the pics I have of it of when i first got it.  :-)
Take care
Jim

 :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
That's a quite long Tale SKIN !

eh eh eh eh eh

I was not the first in Europe to OWN that.
The original buyer is a great friend of me and when he was dealing with Jim about it .... (as i'm working for a freight society) i gave him all the assistance to avoid issues with Customs.

Then .... after i while i had the chance to acquire it ... and i did it !

Take Care

Jim,
I'd bet it !
the sckeleton is still the same ... but may mods were done since i got it

1) the Original Block 10 instrument panel was swapped with a block 52
2) the left aux was slightly modified to the block 52 look (just filled the LeFlap hole
3) The Right Aux was swapped with Martin's replica (and it fits like a glove !
4) the HUD support was rivetted
5) last but not least the Skinning !!! and damn guys i'm really proud of it !

Adn Jim will help again as i ordered his stencils to paint the correct labels on the skinning ! Can't wait to the end of the paint job !

Jim ... would be great if you could post the pictures of the trainer as you got it ! Damn ...... i still have in "mind" the sadness for having lost the seat !

So that was the story behind. But you said "lost the seat" ? Seems like another long story ...
