That CP reminds me of the one on my Lunar Lander.....

The biggest challenge is finding a nice working color vector monitor for it.....financially....

I have an original Tempest Monitor and the Board, but Time-Pilot ignores me... :-\
I have both in my Tempest-Machine and don't need it but what I need, the harness, I don't have....

The picture from cp is needed for the missed German spielanleitung (instructions). Alpha1 has the Same cab with a complete cp, so this would be help.

The colours and graphics from cp are the Same like the us ones i think..., the pic from alpha1 would be help... Marquee is 100% different to US in colours for sure.
