Bulkheads - PT22

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for photos, drawings, dimensions, basically anything regarding number 2 and 3 bulkheads for my project building a scaled replica. I am working from Ev Cassagneres' drawings for the STA but would prefer to utilise the later bulkhead design.

Regards, Ian Mills

rangerryanaircraft.com may be able to help you if you are looking for PT22 bulkheads which will be different than STA. Also The San Diego Air and Space museum should have the drawings.

Thanks, I tried the National Air and Space Museum, who then put me onto the National Archives and Record Administration. They do hold the two drawings in question, F-1002 (#2 Bulkhead) and F-1003 (#3 Bulkhead), unfortunately the rights for these drawings are still held by Northrop Grumman. I contacted the person recommended by the NARA to gain permission to get copies but it was refused due to possible liabilities against Northrop, so I am back to square one. I will now make contact with the San Diego Air and Space Museum and see if my luck is any better. Thanks for the help.

I have now contacted the San Diego Air and Space Museum. They were very helpful and have given me a list of drawings they have which are able to be scanned, including the bulkhead drawings. Thanks again for your assistance.

Thanks Guy. I have now ordered the drawings from San Diego Air and Space Museum. I do know about the guys in Wagga. They were restoring a STA.
