    Very nice windhover. Is there a block, a bit like the one used to control The uc and flaps on a hurricane?

    A panel I'm working on
    I'm hoping to bring it along to Cockpitfest if I can get it a bit more complete "with c0ck levers, mag switches & a few more labels etc".

    The Wing Flaps Hydraulic Control Block is situated beneath the aft lower Port Control Panel and mounted aft of the Radiator Flap Hydraulic Control Block. The Wing Flaps are actuated by the lever on the inboard side of the lower port panel.

    The Undercarriage Quadrant Selector lever is coupled to the Rotary Control Valve actuating lever located low on the aft Port side diagonal frame tube facing inboard, and located midway between frame joints "H" and "N"
    by a hollow alloy tube fitted with a threaded insert riveted into each of its ends; into which is
    screwed an adjustable threaded connecting rod attached to an inverted AGS 385 ball joint
    housing; one of which is attached to the valve actuating lever; and the other to the AGS 385 ball joint
    attached to the remote end of the Undercarriage Selector Lever; thereby transmitting movement
    of the Selector lever position to the valve actuating lever position.

    Using scaled up drawings from an old NATOPS manual, he has machined the armament panel from correct thickness aluminium sheet and it's now ready for the PR indicator and switchgear that I already had.
    Like most of us, I avoid repro parts wherever I can, but the chances of finding and retrieving a genuine A4C panel is pretty unlikely (the more common equivalent A4E panel is not the same, even if you can find it Attachment 252526Attachment 252526Click image for larger version.

ID:	252527), so this is probably the only alternative.

    The next phase is making the appropriate light panel , with all it's complex lettering etc ,which is now in the hands of this forum's Ian Hodgkiss, so watch this space !
    Have also discovered the USN history of the aircraft which the panel came from , and it's service and subsequent damage incurred twice over Vietnam.

    Meanwhile search for missing instruments continues.................Click image for larger version.

    Looking good Gabby, a challenging panel to fill but worth the effort with the history.

    Hi,

    Let me know the USN Bu number which should be on the top left of the panel, and I'll see what I can do.

    Are you currently rebuilding yours, or is it fairly complete?

    Hi Tony, the easiest way to access a/c histories is to join the Skyhawk Assoc, and gain access to their online records where every a/c is listed.
    Details of carrier deployments, accidents and combat damage is available.

    Hi, looking to find some Details Havilland Chipmunk parts to make up a display of parts and ideally a cockpit section with engine fitted. If anyone can help with any parts I would be interested.

    Here are some more recent photo's of the panel I'm working on, as well as some of the labels for the various Bristol Bombay panels.
    The next things to do on the WW1 panel is to drill the holes for the petrol/pressure levers, and make the compass attachment brackets.
    "The instruments are temporarily fitted, and will be tarted up before final fitment".

    Indeed, Fokker G.1. It is the cockpit of a G.1 equipped with the Bristol Mercury engines. Btw, I would love to hear from people who know a lot about the pneumatic brake system manufactured by Dunlop. I need some parts but have no Dunlop numbers, anyone who can help me with that?

    Regards,

    Mathieu.
