F6F Cockpit Control Stick

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a revised F6F Cockpit Control Stick for my 1/24 Airfix Hellcat kit. There are thousands of images of the control stick from the top but none from the side that show off the full parts. Does anyone have any images of it in more detail. Diagrams, etc.?

 

A canvas covering that usually covers the control box. Would this be something that was usually not present on operational aircraft on a carrier?

 

Regards

Not an expert and no images, but AFAIK, the canvas covering prevented foreign object damage (FOD). Don't know why it wouldn't be present.

Yea, I think so too. I did find some more images of the diagram but I'm wondering how to recreate the cover in 1/24 scale. Tamiya 2 part epoxy is a new item for me.

Thanks, I haven't seen those before. I ended up subscribing the the Air Corps Library. Amazing resource!
