    Tony,

    Thanks for your kind words ... progress is slow & a massive amount to do internally - trying to get a trolley made to make it easier to transport which in turn will make it easier to work on.

    Wish we had you & Gary closer!!!!

    Cheers J

    Thanx Brian....it is coming on!
    Jason, I had a trolley welded up for my Packard Merlin....I supplied second hand flexello wheels (350kg load each) that cost £12 for 4, I designed the trolley and the metal firm I use provided the metal and welded the lot together out of 40mm box for £140.

    I think I will buy a load of them for others....the yard I get them from have just lowered the price from £5 each cos they have so many! They are used/not mint but are fine

    I used an engine dolly from "Screwfix" and cut it about to get the right size however they dont seem to stock them any more. You not bonly get heavy duty wheel but a frame you can adapt.

    They look like this:-

    They are standard swivel or fixed Flexello wheels....they have 3 and 4inch diameter ones.
    I will go and make sure they have some first - if anyone is serious, I will buy some....just dont want to have loads spare - otherwise I will need to get more cockpits lol.

    To give some idea, I have used 4 on a Hunter cockpit, 6 on the swift, 4 on the Hurri and Merlin engine standards

    Jason,

    You can still get Link parts from USA, thus...

    And this restoration might be of interest...

    Dave,

    Have been in touch with the former and for an institute set up to promote the Link their prices were eye wateringly expensive for a small museum

    Will check out the 2nd link.

    Any leads on wings, tail & rudder pedals for Link ANT-18 still very much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Does anyone have an idea how this crimping was done to the metal labelling tags? Sorry the picture is not too clear.
    Thanks

    Not sure as regards on aircraft, but Citroens used to have stainless steel bands crimped in a similar fashion to this to lock them in place as hose clips - Once you got them off, it was impossible to get them back on without the right tool - I think the brand name was Ligatex.

    HI

    Thought i would post a few pics of my instrument panels. Hopefully the pics come through. The tigermoth is as i bought it. The lancaster, mustang, and spitfire i had the panels lasercut and have been slowly filling them. I have been told the instruments on the mustang panel should be surface mounted so will have to change these. Some items are repro such as the spitfire trim gauge, flap lever, uc indicator, lancaster steering controls and other parts may not be 100% correct

    I have been chasing some correction card holders for the spitfire and lancaster if anyone knows where these can be obtained

    Cheers Eben

    regards from germany

    Hey there,
    i hope it's no problem for if i post from germany.
    I have seen some very nice panels here.
    i also do restoration of some panels with my father together.
    we actually have a t-33 upper and lower front panel complete as well as many l/h and r/h boxes of the front cockpit.
    Center pedestal of GAF F-4F F/C, F-104G upper instrument panel. Sub Panels 80% complete and lower panel 75% complete.
    Actually the newest project is a tornado cockpit.
    Some intruments and panels of F/C are present but still missing the major instruments.
    best regards from germany
