    Interesting bits! Blast tube, throttle box and cowling gills. Any idea what they're off?

    Many thanks lads, was happy to get them safe and home.
    I'm thinking the .50 cal wing blast tube is from a Wildcat/Hellcat, as I have about 3 sets of Corsair ones the corsair ones usually have VS on them while this one has W26 stamped on her.
    the Engine coolant flap and access panel is from a B17 crash site, Im currently getting the crash records sent to me.
    And the front Cockpit frame is what im thinking a SBD Dauntless.
    the throttle quad is off a single engine aircraft
