The Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 is one of the models mould the metal endoskeleton. James Cameron states that "...the model 101s all look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a 102 looking like someone else...".. It is also known as CSM-101 or simply Model 101.
The Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 living tissue skin was based upon Sector Agent Dieter von Rossbach from government files that pre-date 2001. As a government agent, numerous databases later possessed by Skynet were available to provide ample representation of many physical appearances. When it came to creating the human tissue model for Series 800 Terminators, Skynet used this stored information, along with the data from various other resources, to model the Infiltrator faces on as the closest physical match to contain the Terminator endoskeleton. The Model 101 has been used at least on the T-800 as well as the numerous "contemporary" Terminators created in the present by Serena Burns in her Secret Terminator Lab.
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
The Cyber Research Systems Model 101 living tissue skin was based upon U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant William Candy from 2004. Volunteering to give his likeness to future military robotics, Sergeant Candy's head was laser scanned by Cyber Research Systems, the resultant three-dimensional representation of his face being stored for future use. When it came to creating the human tissue model for Series 800 Terminators, Skynet used this stored information, along with the data from various other human head scans, to model the Infiltrator faces on.
