Back to the Future Delorean Remote - Vintage FUTABA PCM FP-T8SGA-P Radio Transmitter

I have a little non Star Wars prop here, a few weeks back Dustin newmagrathea mentioned it would be cool to build the Back to the Future Delorean Remote so I went hunting for a FUTABA PCM FP-T8SGA-P Radio Transmitter and was able to pick up two accurate versions, which I gifted one of the units to Dustin for all his help with my props & holding my hunted items, the other unit I plan to sell, Dustin did a cool unboxing video.

Very cool!

Right about 3:26 you operate a switch on the left side. It makes a grinding sound that sounds just like the sound effect when Doc uses the left primary joystick!

Vintage Hales No3 MK1

I hunted these two vintage Hales No3 MK1 one with Thick Cubes & the other with Thin Cubes (Drill Hales) both Bodies were stripped & reblued by Scott scottjua both are complete apart from NO Safety Pin and are in nice used vintage condition, both are going in the Junk Yard and would make nice parts for a vintage Obi build or side displays.

Also thanks to Dustin newmagrathea for doing the configurations & photos.
