    I know that it's not quite historic yet, but can anybody suggest where I could find a reasonably priced thrust lever assy from an L1011 TriStar?

    Thought that you cockpit types would be a good place to ask!

    Pa was Chief Eng. on the RB211 - launch partner Lockheeed.

    I'm building a rather unusual Land Rover, and had a silly, but appropriate, idea.

    Thank you all for the positiv feedback.
    I know about the cockpitfest but i've never been there.
    I think this is great atmosphere there every year.I'll see what i can do to visit it once.
    For the better understanding the tornado project is no complete cockpit.
    Not yet
    We have 1 complete MK10 Seat, second one is under restoration right now.
    We are looking for seat pan, PEC and rocket pack to finish it.All other parts are present.
    Next step will be retoration of the F/C panel.A lot of parts are stored in boxes but nearls all the main instruments are missing.
    But we are not in a hurry.

    As an engine man, I would find an RB211-powered Land Rover a silly but highly appropriate idea, unless you were using all three engines, which would be plain daft of course.

    If I had a quid for every time someone mentioned "buried crated Merlins", I could buy one!

    Anyone in need of AN/APN-1 or AN/ARN-1 radar altimeter gauges or switch units? Standard fit to late war aircraft and on various RAF types into the late 50's/early 60's. I have several here left over from the restoration of an APN-1 set that are only taking up space, free donation to restoration projects.

    I'm looking for a good condition Rad Alt switch Type 7231, Ref No 10F/17565 (0-1000ft), is it the same thing would you know?

    Unfortunatly not, these units are SA-1/ARN-1 (Not sure what the RAF designation is, if they ever had one), and range from 50-300 feet. The indicators are ID-1/ARN-1 and ID-14/APN-1 (0-400' and 0-4,000' respectively).

    'I know, lets build a B-17' seemed like a good idea at the time

    I wondered when you would post here Martyn, excellent Sea Vixen panels, I know you've had to create the AU panel from scratch!

    Sea Vixen stuff

    Looks like the makings of a Cockpit Rig there, Martyn.

    This is the panel last week when we finished the support rack to mount it.
    the other picture shows the beginning of restoration as we received the panel.
    We also have one original ejection seat that has to be restored completely.
    it is painted flat black overall by the former owner.this will be a project in the future as well as the side consoles of the front cockpit.maybe summer when the MK10A is done.

    T-33 instrument panel

    Thanks for posting Jetdriver. Very nice project !
    I have nearly finished my T-33 project (see post 478 in Aircraft instrument panel projects, 29-12-2009). Last year I have installed an original control column from Germany. The subpanel is German too. I still have to fix the rudderpedals and are searching for a windscreen.

    Nice to see some more T-bird panels in this project thread.

    Here is another one that is almost complete. From a Canadian built example 133471. Sorry for the picture quality.

    Nice picture British Canuck ! I have never seen this design. Which instrument should be fitted in the big gab ? Can you post a picture how the subpanel looks and perhaps of the complete cockpit ?

    The horizontal situation indicator (HSI) fills the big hole and it is an expensive item to get even when it is a non functional unit.

    I haven't seen many pictures of this panel myself either but I think I might have some on my home PC

    T-33

    Thanks for the picture British Canuck. This HSI is quite impressive. Have never seen that in a T-33 in service in Europe.

    Two more panels nearly finished. Can anyone please help me locate a Lancaster canopy? That's one of the last items i need before i can start rivetting it all together.

    Also very interested in any other Lancaster items that you may have gathering dust and in need of a good home. One day i'd like to bring a Lancaster back to RAF Metheringham.
