    CG-4 Panel

    Thanks to Batur of this forum, an empty Waco CG-4 panel. A very easy panel to fill. The labels are plastic, so the acrylic bumper should hopefully stop me snapping off the left hand label in a clumsy moment. Coming from the States, this one is unlikely to have been in action in Europe. Apparently they were sought after as surplus after the war due to the quality of wood in the packing crates.

    Thanks Fouga, the panel is full now. I'm lucky I have a laser engraver to play with at work for the base.

    Another little hole filled in the collection, Ian, and something a bit different too

    For someone like myself who doesn't have the time or skills to tackle a cockpit restoration does anyone ever sell a completed cockpit at all?

    Yes they do come up, but obviously the price is higher than one that is lacking parts

    Very impressive! Looks good with the plastic front. The lettering sets it off well.

    Hi Ian

    Do you have any plans to add to it "cockpit section etc", or just display as is ?.

    Nice panel, by the way.

    Thanks Bob, probably staying as it is for now. Unless another big lump of CG-4 comes my way.

    This is something I have just acquired, a reconstruction of an F4 left pilots console. Of main importance is the throttles and other parts come from XT900.

    This belonged to a late friend who collected the parts from the aircraft when in the scrapyard, I am so happy to have it as a momento of those days we spent at Scrapyards filling our boots with good stuff, in XT900's case, Hanningfield Metals, a regular haunt of mine and other forum members

    It seems Tony there are a fair few bits of XT900 survived, some external panels also came with it, the tail fin is out there somewhere

    Rob it is, I always admired it when I first saw it many years ago, I would like to add the drag chute handle assembly that goes on the side in the cockpit when I can find one

    That is a very impressive bit of F-4. So many switches and boxes. Quite a base for a throttle box.

    and the largest one to date.

    Totally agree. Both very nice projects there DH112 and Ghostrider870. We don't hear enough about the Sea Venom IMO.

    Not sure if this is the right thread to post on but here goes.
    Now getting to the nity gritty of lining things up. Hopefully more panels will be attached on the next few weeks and the cockpit area can be populated although I'm still short of several key parts.
    This is the replica, the original is coming on slowly purely down to the fact I can't source original parts. I will post photos of the original shortly.

    Thanks Ghostrider 870 and wyverfan I thought the user name appropriate for what I am doing
    a few more panels some of which are unusual for the sea venom
    the navigators panel is for a ECM sea venomI am assuming a early version

    the unpopulated panel is in front of the looker / navigator and is the later versioning and replaces the first panel shown.

    the ECM navigator side panel which the Mk22 fighter version striped next to it

    and finally the panel between pilot and navigators knees normal fighter version with gun controls and the ECM version although not certain if the PT170 control is actually there as the fleet air arm museum aircraft I think had a tacan control fitted based on the plug below the empty panel.
