Hello all, My name is Robert Dunkelbarger
My name is Robert Dunkelbarger; most people just call me Dunk for short.
I am prior Navy, always a carrier sailor when aboard a ship and stationed at Naval Supply Depot Guam and also at Sub base Pearl Harbor Hi. for shore duty.
I am an F-16 pit builder; I have just recently started building my third Pit because I am a bit of a perfectionist.
I am using Jason (Killin) English's Pit Plans.
I have collected many real parts, however all of the panels in my pit are made by Mike (Kabar3) Williams they are laser engraved and top notch. The only panel that will be the real Panel is the Oxygen Regulator, and that is because I have a real one bought from well known parts provider Jim (Feathers) Keane.
I manufacture Replica parts as well for Simulators both for my own pit as well as for others.
I attend the I/ITSEC convention every year in Orlando Fl as an exhibitor with AeroTronics.
I have been a member of the ViperPits forums for about 4 years.
I will start a Pit building Thread here to show my progress if it is so desired by the moderators and the community here.

Would love to see a f-16 thread here. That would be a sweet distraction from Boeings and buses
And would love to see pictures of your products. I have a friend who is an f-16 fanatic and maybe I could turn his mind into building an f-16 sim
