    Projects Wants And Trades 2019

    I posted a load of wants and parts available for trade at the time when the Forum was going through a really hard time - coming to terms with its new incarnation - and I think that my post got no airplay at all, and the whole thread seems to have disappeared into the past. So I am trying again!

    I'm looking for parts for single-seat Vampire and DH.108 projects:

    Smiths Desynn Position Indicator ('Transmitter'), eg 170FL, 315FL, as shown below.
    Undercarriage Indicator, nose wheel type, 6A/1009
    (Burner) Pressure gauge, 6A/1579
    Oil Pressure, 6A/1563
    Artificial Horizon HL5, 6A/2717
    Brake Pressure triple gauge, G6A/2157 (303PG)
    Cabin pressure, 6A/1749
    Sensitive ASI Type F-1, 106A/1110
    Fuses 5C/881, 10 amp, type S
    Fuses 5CZ/550, 40 amp, type E
    Radio Control Unit Type 295, Y10L/151
    SCR-695 Selector Unit Type BC-965-A - Y110L/59A
    SCR-695 Control Unit Type BC-958-A - Y110L/56A
    Vampire Fuel Panel (early type to suit 5 fuel gauges & clock) - B001893A, B00593 or B00597 - Fuel gauges not required
    Cross mounting tube for instrument panels - B0049A

    Also interested in most single-seat Vampire parts ('anything'); partnumbers such as A00, B00, N00 series, etc.

        This is probably going to be a long shot but I'm looking for a set of Hawker Tempest V, series 1, front wing spars for an up and coming project details of which will be posted separately.
        I currently have a set of Hawker Tempest II front wing spars. Unless I can find the correct ones I will have to use the Tempest II one's
        Am also looking for Typhoon/Tempest parts that can be added to a cockpit rebuild such as tubes either broken or complete. I have some Typhoon, Spitfire and Hurricane parts to trade..

                  A1134 Intercom amplifier, including crate and most of the mountings (the bungees on the other side will be fitted, but batteries not included):

                  R1155 HF Receiver (4 off, one very original and 3 hacked about variously). We can include some of the Jones plugs for the set and the connector to the power supply

                  We are after:
                  R.3121 or R.3090 IFF Transponder (the US version SCR 595/695 would do)
                  Type 90 IFF Aerial
                  A1271 Beam Approach Amplifier
                  Beam Approach Aerial 10B/496

                  (We also have a wants list of smaller items). We are in NZ, but the problem is unlikely to be insurmountable. Please PM me if you have any interest in these items and anything to trade with.
