I think that one at Filching is the original one from CN7, not K7. Mind you, it does look the same!

I thought Don Sidebottom had the wheel remains, that's where I saw them, and Don was the winning bidder at the Neales auction...........
Steve Holter, UK and France, and sometimes reality....................

Mike-got 2 or 3 of the original type clocks put away-working on the rest-most seem to be Gnat items anyway except for that bloomin weird Egt guage which is eluding me so far but if it was on an aircraft I'll get it! :ugeek:

Probably is-Bluemells made all the wheels for DC and Malcolm including their private transport as well-pity they're out of the game but there are a coupla firms capable of making a new repro wheel for K7-it's the Burman steering gear which is more problematical!

We're doing well for all these kinds of parts now, but of course, you can never have too many spares to hand! 8-)
