Post by spatialpro »

Does anyone know of a source of general arrangement (GA) drawings for any Martin Baker ejection seat(s) please?

Many thanks

Many thanks for your replies Marijn! They really help :thumbsup:

However, what I'm really after are 3-view general arrangement (GA) drawings rather than perspective views or cutaways, i.e. the kind of drawings which can be used for 3D modelling ;)

I dealt with Martin Baker for Bae during the development phase for the MK16 Ejection Seat for Typhoon. I am sure that if you contact them with a specific Mk of Seat they will assist you.Would suggest that you stick to pre Mk10 type seats

Here is an example of the kind of general arrangement drawing I'm after please. I'm looking for orthographic projections (just two shown here, but more would be ideal). Anything looking like this, of any scale, or any seat would be much appreciated please.

Many thanks again :thumbsup:

I tripped over it when looking at images for the seats. Apparently those that pop up in the google search don't match your needs?:

Wouldn't be surprised if "Aeroplane" or "Flypast" did a feature at some stage, but I don't have an archive index for either.
Haven't found any reference in my library either, I'm sorry to say.

Nope, not me.

Those scanned manuals are always doing the rounds on eBay though. I tend not to buy them if I can't be sure they contain what I need (in this case they contain lots of perspective or exploded views rather than orthographic)... though I may cave in at some point!

What'd be ace (pun?!) would be to find some old blueprints of seats on eBay someday... Here's hoping...
