A good OCAU citizen just sent me this. Port side cockpit control. Awesome!!!

You should have seen the markings he put on the box. Pissed myself laughing when I received it! I'll get a photo of it later.

Tonight's work on the front intake.

I've used ply as a face, pine timber as a frame, plastic bread crate as filter and aluminium angle and flat bar as the grille and louvres. Still got to get a stack of flat bar to finish the louvres.

Nice flight controller Capt.

If you have access to and old PC with a joystick pot I believe it should work. Nothing on the auction indicated it didn't

Not sure on the interactivity plans of the joysticks, but we'll figure something out when we get to it. I welcome suggestions.

I'm still having terrible troubles finding the F15 Joystick. It's going to cost me at least $80 (AUD converted) to buy and ship from overseas. Ebay keeps sending me back to the same ones.

Trying to find one in Australia.



I did post a thread asking, in the retro forum, but so far no luck.

I went and did it.

It's done now. More than I wanted to pay but how long will I be able to find one before they are all gone.

I found the correct seat on Ebay in the US.

How is it that for around $110 AUD, I can buy a single item from the US and get it here, but if I buy it from an Australian supplier that orders them in bulk, they charge me $130?

Crikey!
