    Throttle Quadrant Blank

    I have been a member of this community for for many years and have never posted a thread. but in the past 6 months time has been available to start. I found one of the more challenging item was the throttle quadrant because it took on many different angles and features. So my initial
    idea was to make a blank that would help me as a starting point and other which find it as difficult as I did. There is plenty to do to it but in my eyes this was the hardest part

    Wow, looks very good! how did you do it. Looks like plastic... is it moulded?

    Keep up the excellent work and of course keep posting.

    great to see this kind of paintwork,
    Could be wise to start this way, it's almost impossible to turn youre eyes away now
    When once you have tasted flight,
    you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward

    If you can make the TQ base, you can certainly make a back panel for the MIP the same way

    Hi steve A,
    I built a full size unit which I made a mould from, then produced this unit, made from fibreglass
    it is very strong able to take my weight (85KG) standing on the top. Currently got three unit. Have to make the trim guards
    and cut all the channels for throttle and fuel cutoffs as the basic unit.
    regards
    Rob

    Do you want to sell one of them? I could use one in my 727/737 SIM.
