Hei Nigel, very sorry to kidnapp your thread but I have trying to contact you by PM for a couple of weeks.

Would you check your inbox to see if you got my PM?  ;)

Thanks!

Tulkas

P.S: I love your new dog, I am sure it's really cosy to have her as co-pilot in long night sorties  :)

The new pup is cute, Dave. Glad you have a new little friend, I remember you telling me about the incident on the ph. A terrible experience not only physically for your wife, but the memories and trauma of seeing that happen to your pup. We have 2 Beagles and they are family members really, so I can relate.

Thanks Mike . Here is a short vid of the EWPI being used as the Fuel Quantity gauge. The first two digits are the A/L needle, the second pair is the F/R needle the last four is the total.

Yes indeed Cars. Thats why I did it. Flight lead calls Ops Check and I used to have to toggle my cockpit view from off to 3d, then try to get the TrackIR  to focus on the BMS FQI and then read it out. Meanwhile he goes "Ops check" ......crickets chirping while I fumble around........three 27 32 7200 all green...four same" and then finally me.............. two same" and I look stupid. No more!!!

Hi Nigel, my wife wants to make the canvas thing behind the seat (and connected to the mapbox and the other side). Is there a possibility you take some pictures and measurements of the canvas ?

If she succeed to produce a good replica, it will be available too here on VP :)

Sure, will do. The turnbuckle latches are available at some fabric stores but my best luck was at a store that makes canvas boat and sail covers. They seem to be common on boats. I will post them here or make a new thread.

Hi all,
I have been busy working but more importantly, I have been moving for my new job and have not had access to my pit or any of my parts.
JJ when I get back to my boxes of parts I will either send you the curtain or get the dims for you. It does not look too hard to duplicate. I also have the floor curtain that goes around the relief boxes. (piss cans)
I have some other parts for sale and will post them on auction. I really miss flying and cant wait to get my pit set up again.
