    Hi, I have acquired a control stick that is very like a Lockheed T33 stick, but with a kink in it and a stick shaker and a Maybar stick top. It is not F104...any ideas please? Lots of part numbers starting 46-

    cheers
    Tony

    F-94C part numbers started at 45xxxx from my sources. It would seem this would be the closest match.

    Not a bad match, here is a pic of it.....it is covered with 46- part numbers.....the grip is by Maybar - not seen them before. The previous owner got it from the US, he thought it might be a special USN Silver Star that did blind landings....

    The stick is same shape as F94C (a bent T33 if you like). Pix attached.

    Cheers....that Merlin my Scottie!

    The cockpit was obviously the green colour that WW2 etc US aircraft were painted in.

    Apparently the Starfighter was L-246, wonder if the part numbers begin with 46-?
    It has a coaxial stick shaker, this is 'popular' with T tails as they can have a propensity to deep stall. The F106 ended up with a stick shaker....could this be an early F106 stick?!!!
