    Looking for a pair of lids for a SCR522 radio, also a decent coax socket if anyone's got one.
    My scr522 is lacking these to be complete.
    Many thanks, station 342

      Hi all!

      Does anyone have a tail wheel fork for a DHC Beaver?

      It's all good. Probably.

              I`m looking for 5 replacement Stb`d side Lancaster exhaust stubs for the ground runner.
              As you can see, I have plenty of port side stubs to swap! Happy to purchase outright if needs be.

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

                Hi all

                I am desperately seeking a set of split throttle levers for my Auster T7 rebuild...see below (yellow knobs). I just cant find any with my contacts over here in NZ.

                I have seen these levers retro-fitted to several AOP-6's but I cant locate any for my Aircraft. I would be hugely appreciative of any leads anyone has. I have other Auster 6/7 spares I can trade.

                    I'm after a reasonable complete late Anson throttle quadrant. In fact, any reasonable throttle box with Throttle, mixture and prop RPM control levers on would do as long as it's in reasonable nick.

                    The throttle pedestal in my Anson belongs to somebody else and is only there on loan until I can find a replacement and they'll do a swap. I was a bit late acquiring the cockpit section a couple of years back and the seller sold the throttle box before I got it.

                    Yours hopefully,

                    Happy New Year.

                          For a couple of restoration projects........

                          Any T-6 or Harvard parts. Particularly centre section, main and tail undercarriage, windscreen and decking, fin, horizontals and elevators, ailerons and flaps. Anything is of interest however, particularly if in the UK/Europe.

                          Type J landing lamp (5C/1515 I think), any Gipsy Queen parts, de Havilland two blade bracket propeller seals. American style magneto switches. American style air filter this type

                          Also de Havilland Dove or Heron fuel filter, hydraulic pump and hydraulic filter.

                          I think that's it for now.

                            looking for the rods to connect the chains up on my Hurricane control column. They are currently connected with garden wire! Do not have to be original parts just want something that will do the job beter than the wire.

                              For the Wyvern I'm particularly looking for a Type 2 Mk.1 retractable GGS mounting - ref 8B/2860, or as an alternative a Hawker SeaHawk type GGS mounting would be welcome. Also all Wyvern parts always welcome.

                              Also trying to track down an instrument panel for the Short Sturgeon, as there has been at least one that surfaced several years ago.

                                For a Javelin interior / panel mockup when retirement arrives (although it seems to recede not approach!), I've put together a small photo album of bits and things that have eluded me so far entitled WANTED. Prevents me making a mess of the thread and showing myself up.


                                Many thanks

                                  If anyone has any of the following Hornet parts, I'd be interested:

                                  Nose cone
                                  Cannon fairing

                                  Thanks in advance,
