Hello All!

I had the pleasure of flying the mighty Beechcraft Turbo Mentor (T-34C) for 4 of my 25 years flying in the U.S. Navy, first as a Student Naval Aviator in 1996 at NAS Whiting Field, FL and then as an Instructor Pilot in the years 2001-2004 at NAS Corpus Christi, TX.

Over the years, my hobby has been slowly acquiring a replica of that cockpit that I know so well. I am down to a few missing gauges from the instrument/engine panel and was hoping someone here might point me in the right direction. eBay has been a good resource, but I'm finding a few gauges that have proven hard to find for purchase.

If I'm successful, even if these last few gauges may not have come from a T-34C, if they are Beechcraft products, I'm hopeful they are reasonably close to what I remember, the pictures I see, and the manual I have from my flying days.

I'm going to list those gauges now in the "Want to Buy" section.

Specifically, they are an Accelerometer (G-meter), ITT indicator, and Dual oil temp/oil pressure gauge.

Thanks for adding me,

Mike

When you get all the holes filled, you need to do some wiring, make it look alive. Looking good! :thumbup:
