1-17-C-M-3.....REPUBLIC P-47D THUNDERBOLT FUEL GAUGE..............Original Liquidometer EA 124-40 fuel quantity indicator, 24V..........this went in the "D" model, the most heavily produced of all P-47's, and what helped the 63rd Fighter Squadron shoot down a "whole lotta Germans"..........with a R-2800 eighteen cylinder radial engine up front, the 'Jug' was a thirsty bird........onboard fuel alone totalled 370 gallons, plus whatever drop tanks were installed..........note red markings at 40 gallons....hopefully the channel was in sight by then.........gauge in excellent condition with 1953 overhaul tag still on it..... I doubt it was used since......$145

4-24-C-M-6...........VOUGHT F4U CORSAIR CONTROL STICK GRIP.........Original 2 button style (trigger and button) grip has NAF #1173-2 number marked on side, AN-3 size retaining screw and two wire leads for button connection....have a few with slightly different style markings.....heavy checkering and form fitting shape make this a very comfortable grip......no wonder why Pappy Boyington's 'boys' were such good aim ........original, used, in good shape.....$180

14-32-C-M-8.....NEW OLD STOCK C-54 WHEEL .... WOW what a find!....brand new old stock original Douglas C-54 control wheel complete with center cap, autopilot release button and emergency cockpit light button.....the collector I bought this from removed the Douglas tags from the wheel, but is probably one of the last new old stock control wheels from a WWII era airplane.... wheel was also used on Douglas DC-4, DC-6 and early DC-7's, as well as R5D and R6D.......wheel measures over 13" across and is cast metal with black coating.....a few handling chips in the black coating do not detract from the originality of this wheel.......$450

That VOUGHT F4U CORSAIR CONTROL STICK GRIP looks like something of a mix of a plastic toy gun and a joystick.Cool stuff.

There's a place in the UK (advertising in PC Pilot) selling entire Spitfire XIV panels for 700. Now.. link that up with Device Link and build your desk around it... total joy assured.
