Universal Vintage Metal Throttle Consoles

I am building universal "heavy duty" metal throttle consoles for fighters and two motor aircrafts. These "vintage WWII style" metal chassis goes together very well for. ex. with the Slaw Device rudder pedals and Baur's Bf 109's KG13 Grip or VKB Gladiator stick. If you think that the jet ages HOTAS-controllers with the digital displays are unsuitable to your classy retro cockpit this is a real choice to you!

These pictures in this page are from the fighter console prototypes witch I have made to myself and eight my Finnish squad mates. The final production models have much more functions than these prototypes but the main console idea is the same!

Fighter Throttle Console - Technical features

Fighter throttle console.

The outer steel shell of the console will be manufactured and painted industrially for ex. as Luftwaffe gray or as Soviet cockpit colors.

The mapping example below has both Luftwaffe and Soviet 1-motor fighter's functions, but you can map it like you wish. There is also room to the future IL-2 Sturmovik functions. All the buttons and switches are separated to the different sub groups so you can handle and find them easy with the VR-glasses, too. I am building these first new production models in the summer, so the new pictures are coming also soon!
