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

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

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.

HAWKER TEMPEST/TYPHOON

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..

We (Ferrymead Mosquito Project) have the following radio boxes available for trade:

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

Rebecca Mk IV Indicator unit Type 208 10QB/6130

We are after:

Beam Approach Aerial 10B/496
Voltage Control Panel Type 3 or Type C3
UV Lighting Resistance Box 5C/1879

I have a few Hurricane fuselage (fish) plates for trade. Two from joint A two from D and two from further back in rear fuselage. Good for static cockpit build. Would consider swap for other plates from joint AB-GH cockpit section or tube end fittings from same section. Can email pics if you send me a p.m. and let me know what you have got. Thanks.

I’m looking for two air inlet ducts similar to the one pictured. This one is from a Chipmunk and ideally I’m looking for something very slightly more tapered at the rear end and around seven inches long - although this type would work just as well.

Thanks in advance.

Up at NELSAM, we have a number of surplus Chipunk engine panels that may have said item attached. I will have a look in the storage container at the weekend

Rather than ask for something specific, we're after anything Stirling related either to buy or to have loan of if possible. Anything that can give us information to take the project forward such as crash relics etc as even the smallest parts can be of use

TIA
