I've had the pleasure of making dozens of friends from around the world over the last few years who, as a hobby, restore or build warbird instrument panels.
Many have shared photos of their projects with me, and with their permission, I've created a webpage to showcase their work.
You can see them here: https://aeroantique.com/collections/warbird-instrument-panels

WIXers who have projects like this are invited to share your projects among those of others, just PM me.
Some project owners need a few (or many!) parts, and may list their 'wants' on the panel page in case a visitor can help them out (and I'm happy to connect you).
This is not a commercial endeavor and I make no money from it, its simply a place for folks with similar interests to share their fine work.

As of the date of this posting, there are over 20 projects on the website.
Some have very interesting histories, which are summarized on their own pages.
The goal is to showcase 100+ projects.
Included are some very interesting panels already, such as:

B-58
Vildebeest
Fairey Battle
Hadrian Glider
Bristol Beaufort
MiG 25
RB-34

I hope that you'll enjoy them...I sure do.

If I'm not going to far afield here...

I would greatly like to acquire a mach meter from an F4 Phantom.

Any help appreciated thanks and apologize for getting off the main topic of this thread.
