Ha! Yes sort of Matt. I was measuring up the rear tank fairings so that I can get some new ones made!

Below are some photos of XV163 at the international aircraft museum in the Netherlands...

Notice from the photos that XV163 has been converted in to a simulator and rather ingeniously sports a sideways opening blacked out canopy as well as monitors and speakers inside!

With thanks to Ruud Versteeg for the photos!

Further to my above post, Ruud informs me that the museum intends to remove all of the simulator equipment and return XV163’s cockpit to original condition.

As can be seen from the photos, several major parts need sourcing such as the canopy which is clearly not the original. Any help with parts etc. would be appreciated.
