Thanks for that Taff! I have always thought a rail link was the way forward, as for the Sparrows - why not!

Leave the cockpit and engineering area as they are.
The general public aren't going to see it.

Hi guys,

Blimey, that was a nice welcome back!!  ;D It's good to see so many familiar faces still around!

Paramania,

Unfortunately, my career has taken a different path nowadays, so I'm not really hands on any more and spend my days 'engineering' figures instead  ;D Obviously I still have a great affinity for the jet though and would always give whatever help I could.

Jane!!

Thank you, that's a lovely thing to say.  :D

Clifford, Steve,

Thanks guys, that means a lot.


So, with regard to the cockpit instruments, yes, as far as I recall it was frequently mentioned in Q&As around the time of the restoration that the original cockpit panels and instruments would be retained and refitted "after it's flying life", however, as Mayfly has said I think this was mentioned when the idea was that it would be housed in a museum as a static piece. Time marches on though and plans change, so while physically possible to refit the panels and instruments, they would not be functional without a second extensive rewire to retrofit the old kit, as the cockpit was extensively stripped and rewired for the modern instrument fit.

Leave it as it is! It looks quite funky!  ;D ;D


Cheers,
Flipflopman
