Hi there,

I saw his thread but he will only sell the whole pit. It would be too expensive to ship :(

Thanks for the link though.

Yes I only want to buy reproduction or "simulator" parts. Not real aircraft parts unless they are unrestricted. Perhaps I didn't make that clear in the first post. There are some nice fabricated parts (if that is the correct word) circling around since there are quite a few F-18 simpit builders around. There has also been two online shops that sell homemade Hornet parts. Some people have decided not to continue with their projects and there are parts but they are a bit rare.

I wonder if Jim's pit has replica parts or real parts. Well it doesn't matter since I don't have money to buy one.

I'll have to keep making my own parts :)

Jim's pit is all real ..but to ship it out to your as a single unit with not happen.. unless hell freezes over.. however that being said atb11k it's a bargain    just for stick and throttle plus rudder pedals they are not restricted 😆.... same with seat as its not a NACES . you could just buy the switches as well etc less thexpensive panels

Fcoq: Nice! Do you have sample images of the panels you have made? How are the panels illuminated?

I really like your panels. Nice job! I'll PM about the panels when I sort out my pit plans.
